PLAYING FAVORITES…AGAIN – PROMPT # 54

We drag this prompt out of the trunk every so often. We’ve asked for a line from your favorite poem, a lyric from a song… today, we ask you to take the title of a favorite movie or television program you enjoy and use that for the title of your poem. Then write the poem. We are not asking for a synopsis of the movie/show, but something to take us completely by surprise. Even if you don’t watch a lot of TV or go to many movies now, there must be something that has touched you on the level. Write it and as always, next Saturday Marie and I will honor two poems from our growing list of favorite poet/gardeners.

MARIE’S FAVORITE:

MOONSTRUCK
(To the tune of That’s Amore)

If you hit-a my eye
With a big-a pizza pie,
That’s a law suit.

Though the moon makes me swoon
Poke-a my eye out, you lune,
That’s a law suit.

‘scusa me, but you see,
If you mess with Marie
That’s a law suit!

(Just kiddin’!)

WALT’S FAVE:

DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES

A well pitched woo
and me and you across
ways from one another.
There is no other that draws
my attention like you
and, it’s true we used to
do this more often,
but friend this unexpected
tryst is just what the doctor ordered.
It borders on shmaltz,
but this is Walt’s time to shine.
“Would you like some more wine?”
It’s about time we’ve stopped
and smelled the roses.
