Explore Your Wild Side

I don’t know about y’all, but I’m having a fairly decent day. I took the younger boys to the park while my second oldest is at a band competition, and in a few hours my neighbors are throwing a party and they’ve invited us. The kids get to play while the adults have wine and chat. So, today’s poetry challenge prompt definitely made me smile. Write wild today. Explore your wild/primal side and let it loose in your writing.

Here’s the kicker…I had the hardest time thinking of anything to write for it. That may have been due to the fact that I didn’t actually feel like writing for it because I felt like acting on it instead. Seriously. I had my dancing music on and I wanted to be dancing, not writing. But I did eventually get something put on paper despite that restless gypsy blood surging through my veins.

So here it is, along with one of the songs that makes my pulse race, feet tap, and blood burn with Morgan’s wild wind. And yes, I totally laid claim to Morgan’s wild wind idea because I loved it so much. She gets all the credit though. Thank you, Dear One.

I Hear the Wild Wind

By Jesi Scott

 

I hear the wild wind singing in my veins-

Break your chains

Break your chains

It sings, and I feel a rush in my blood.

 

I feel the wild wind trip-trapping through my nerves-

Rounding my curves

Rounding my curves

Strummed like a Spanish guitar.

 

I dance with the wild wind streaming through my hair-

Join me if you dare

Join me if you dare

Lose your inhibitions and love me, or beware.

 

I hear the wild wind singing in my veins-

Break your chains

Break your chains

It sings, and desire rushes through my blood.

Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
