Ocean inspired Poetry [unedited]
When i wrote this poem i was listening to the 5 minute plus recording of this song on repeat.
Whereas you guys have the ‘best recording ever’ of Ocean to accompany my poem: So go ahead and listen. It’s my heart-stopping, heart-warming favourite. Especially in an airport. It took me miles away and chucked me into this visionary day-dream:
Begins, amid the aftermath of a big night.
Friends waking up, one at a time
searching for the common morning elixir,
feet slapping the cool kitchen floor
loud, in the morning stillness.
Laughs mingle reliving last night
laughs awaken dream-bodies
who stumble out (into the scene)
facing the new day,
any which way – in shorts and singlets,
Gravitate to sunny spots,
sit huddled and cozy and
cuddles in the kitchen.
The momentum picks up to
forming pictures in the morning minds.
Collision of voices ricochet against each other-
groan sigh ah Where is my other shoe?
mingling with beginnings of smiles…
caught between heartbeats,
some missed in the blinding sunlight.
Comes to a close in an amalgamation
of sounds spattered with emotion,
laughter edging on hysteria,
the beginning of a new day is at it’s climax
Friends remember and hurtle
memories around the room,
like ping-pong balls,
before they exit.
