Today’s Airplane Poetry Movement prompt tells me to use the first line of my favourite song to write a poem. I struggle to pick ‘A favourite song’, so I clicked my ‘Favourites’ playlist on Shuffle, and here’s what popped up: ‘Sun and Moon’, by Above & Beyond.
It’s raining, it’s pouring,
And everything around you seems to be falling apart,
Faster than the cookie crumbles,
Into the milk that you’ve dipped it in,
The sun is a lasting memory,
And no shelter seems close,
Your heart fills with dread.
But fear not, O Braveheart,
For bearing the rain enables you,
To appreciate the warmth of the sun,
And of pleasant weather.
Fear not, O Braveheart,
Jump in puddles,
And create positive memories of your worst fears,
For that’s all you can do
When your fears become truth.
