Today’s prompt:
Today’s prompt is from Donna Vorreyer:
Put your mp3 player or any music making device on shuffle.
Write down the first five titles that come up. No cheating allowed!
Use all five titles to draft a new poem. You can use other words around the song titles, but the titles must be incorporated. They have to be used intact — you can interrupt them with punctuation, but you may not remove or change words.
Shuffle away — the more eclectic your music collection, the better!

Bonus Points – write a spoken word poem and create a video or audio recording of yourself. You can post the link in the comments.

Post your poem to comments!

Read the NaPoWriMo Challenge Kickoff post for details on how the challenge works and how you can participate this month, no matter what your personal writing challenge is for the month of April.

Please read this page to find out how the prompt posts work. Remember that work shared this month is shared in precisely that spirit: sharing, as opposed to critiquing.

  1. Don’t run away,
    I just wanna dance!
    You don’t have to be scared,
    Just give it a chance!

    “Start me up!”
    The sad MP3 cries,
    “I want to play music,
    To light up your eyes.”

    Try just a step,
    There isn’t much to it.
    All you need to have,
    Is the courage to do it.

    You don’t realize,
    How life it will enhance.
    Please give it a try,
    And I hope you dance.
