I am speechless, flabbergasted

when I see you walk, hear you talk

when I see you smile, feel your love

I am dumbstruck, my brain freezes 

I am stuck, stuck in love with you

I am speechless, I am flabbergasted

unable to speak, my tongue-tied

my brain stutters for a moment

every part of me goes on pause

like an old recorder on hold

I am speechless, flabergasted

as my thoughts catch up, my eyes close

a few moments or a lifetime

I sure will embrace with sweet grace

you always mesmerize me, dear

I am speechless, flabbergasted

  prompt 9 write a quatern poem

NaPoWriMo Day 10 – https://www.napowrimo.net/day-ten-9/

 It’s called “Junk Drawer Song,” and comes to us from the poet Hoa Nguyen.

  • First, find a song with which you are familiar – it could be a favorite song of yours, or one that just evokes memories of your past. Listen to the song and take notes as you do, without overthinking it or worrying about your notes making sense.
  • Next, rifle through the objects in your junk drawer – or wherever you keep loose odds and ends that don’t have a place otherwise. (Mine contains picture-hanging wire, stamps, rubber bands, and two unfinished wooden spoons I started whittling four years ago after taking a spoon-making class). On a separate page from your song-notes page, write about the objects in the drawer, for as long as you care to.
  • Now, bring your two pages of notes together and write a poem that weaves together your ideas and observations from both pages.

Note: My song is Speechless, my object is a recorder
