Ordinary Words



Wrote a song,
published a poetry book,
began a blog,
maintain a Face Book page... all by under the  name ORDINARY WORDS....here's the instrumental along with the lyrics....

What extraordinary words can you come up with?

For more Os check out Alphabe-Thursday-O


Ordinary Words

1. There should be no such
Word as ordinary
Since it can't apply to you.
Our  vocabulary
Works inadequately
When I try describing you.

Refrain:
Words are my life
And I'm at a stand still
Stuck  with mere tools of my voice.
So let's start from scratch and
Make up new rules so that
I have a much better choice.

Ordinary words are weary
Regular vocabulary
Never will do justice to the
Way I must express myself.
I'll throw out the dictionary.
Build a new vocabulary.
Ordinary word won't make its
Way back onto my bookshelf.

~so ordinary, so ordinary, such ordinary words~

2. Normal dreams are not
Ever ordinary,
'specially when they include you.
Catch my dreams in a net
From a dictionary.
In its web only are bits of you.

Refrain

You are splendiferous, awesomely nifterrific, exponensously superb.

~
3. Every day is not
To be ordinary
Now that I am around you.
Oh yeah, All my days I'll be
Searching dictionaries
As I try describing you.
~
Refrain
(mixed)
So ordinary, such ordinary words I don’t wanna hear.
Take these ordinary words and make them into words I can really hear

Gimme Love

For ABC Wednesday Letter G

Don't have any instrumental to post this week.  Gimme Love is a freestyle type poem which was inspired by a contest prompt... to watch a U-tube video and come up with a poem. Had not heard of Ed Sheeran before but I did enjoy his song and the way he presented it.

Ed Sheeran - Give Me Love


Gimme Love

Words
On an orange backdrop
Spilling the guts
Of the desperate,
Disparate
Poet-turned-songwriter.

His chosen creative outlet,
Our inlet
To see if we can concur
With his words
“Give Me Love”



An no, I did not "win" the contest but I did get good positive feedback from other poets♫♪

No Spring


Had my daughter take voice lessons when she was in the 5/6 combined class at our local school.  I thought she needed some self confidence and the place where I took the kids for their piano lessons offered voice lessons -so I could get two kids of my four occupied at the same time.  She now exudes self confidence...sailed through college as a dorm resident advisor....is  chosen at her work for outstanding employee...so she's doing well.

Here's a piece she composed and plays on the piano.  I threw the other instruments in and made up the lyrics.....


NO SPRING

These days
I feel you've lost your heart,
You’re breaking away
We’re falling apart
I wish we were still
Two peas in a pod.

I see you and
all we do is nod.
These days are open
And I am changing as I learn,
As leaves turn
And winds change direction…

Refrain:
Times like these I feel there is no hope
Now I need some answers and I need to cope
I’ll change the seasons. Here’s my vote:
I’ll change summer to winter,
Winter to fall
With no spring at all

These Days…Ooh

These days
I trudge along this road
I’m in overload
My season is sad

Refrain

Summer is winter and
Winter will fall
Sadness has entered with
No spring at all
Change rearranges. My seasons seem to crawl.

These days
I feel you've lost your heart,
You’re breaking away
We’re falling apart
I wish we were still
Two peas in a pod.
I see you and all we do is nod.

Refrain

Fooling Time


I've posted this song in a previous post, but I did not have the audio widget working then and I don't think many folks got a chance to see/hear it. Plus it just seems to fit this political climate.... Tried for a more symphonic sound♫

And I'm not just sure whether it should be E'vry or Ev'ry but at least I'm consistent!
Fixed it...Thanks to the English teacher who commented!!!

Fooling Time

I try fooling time,
Put off til tomorrow all my dreams I will follow.
I can fool your mind,
Faking comes so easily, I fool you all the time.

Refrain:
Folks can be fooled and love can be fooled.
My friends  can be told some lies now and then.
Fooling time, most the time.
Fool all people some of the time
Or fool people all of the time
Fooling time, fooling time.

Not worth fooling time
I’ve hurt you and you’ve hurt me while we fool with the time.
Folks can be fooled and love can be fooled.
My friends can be told some lies now and then.

There’s no fooling time.
Ev'ry one’s allotted just so much time to plot in.
Time heals all your wounds,
Time wounds all the heels and fools, but there’s no fooling time.

Refrain

Fooling time’s insane.
Time just speeds along. There’s barely time to be wrong.
Fooling time, most the time.
Ev'ryone tries to fool time ‘til there’s no tomorrow.
~
There’s no fooling time.
Ev'ry one’s allotted just so much time to plot in.
I try to fool my mind.
Fooling’s all I know. I fool myself all of the time..

Refrain

 Fooling time’s insane.
Time just speeds along. There’s barely time to be wrong.

Fooling time like there’s no tomorrow.
Fooling time can be such a sorrow.
Fooling time like there’s no tomorrow.
Fooling time can be such a sorrow.
Fooling time….Fooling time…

Mooniverse♫


Now that I have my audio widget actually working, I thought I'd post one of my first vocal recordings that daughter Angela did when she was still in high school.  She has now graduated college with a communications degree and is employed by Humana, but she still likes to sing♫

For the fabulous blog hop hosted by Miss Jenny (click on the link for more letter M's!)

 Alphabe-Thursday Letter M

MOONIVERSE

1. I stopped for directions. He raised his glasses.
I looked in his eyes and I knew.
Here was a man who could answer questions.
Yeah, destiny came in on cue.

“Can you direct me sir, straight to the moon?”
“I’ll take you,” he replied. “Wait until noon.”

2. Noon came on time and we left together,
The man in the moon merely smiled.
Time ticked on by and the sun shut down as
The milky way filled up the sky.

Refrain:
Mooniverse, mooniverse, you’re never blue.
Nowhere on earth can I find one like you.
I have found my
Pie in the sky.

3. There’s nothing mystic. It’s quite simplistic.
Hey I take directions real good.
Our lucky stars keep on generating
a love that we thought never could.

Refrain

4.  Waxing or waning, there is no explaining.
The moon always reaches its height.
Moon beams are dancin’, my man keeps romancin’.
Our mooniverse is pure delight.

Mooniverse, mooniverse nights! 
Mooniverse, mooniverse nights!

Encounter♫



This instrumental's intro has a music box feel....

E is for Encounter for ABC Wednesday



1. Chance encounter, mis-encounter
Our encounter seems so doomed.
Close encounter, best encounter,
Love’s encounter is assumed
Our paths seemed so star crossed
But fate has played a trick on us.

2. Kiss encounter, tryst encounter
All encounters with you are
Choice encounters, bliss encounters
My encounters with you are
Filled with ecstasy, my love
I had never dreamed this kind of love.

3.Quick encounter, scant encounters
Our encounters seem too brief
Mad encounter, Sad encounters
Our encounters meet with grief
Is it coming to an end?
Will we just remain as friends?

4. Meek encounters, weak encounter
Tense encounters face us as
Calm encounters, clear encounters
Glad encounters claim us. Oh
We have made it through the rough
Our encounters were enough.

5. How do you like my little list of encounters?
All life is like my little list of encounters…..
