Found Poetry February Day 12 – My Wild Heart

First of all let me apologize, I’ve been more than a little lax in reading, commenting, and my own writing this week. A brief explanation, thanks to the strange iniquities in the US medical and insurance systems, it has been necessary for me to travel through several states to arrive at a medical facility that is within my insurance network in order to have a minor medical procedure done. Add to the fact that the procedure, while minor, includes the word “biopsy” and as you can probably guess, my mind has been a bit preoccupied.

So it’s all done and over now just waiting on the results which I’m certain are “weird but not serious” since that’s pretty much how every diagnostic test I’ve ever had my entire life (and yeah, I’ve had a LOT) has gone. Anyway … it all got me to thinking about the Found Poetry February challenge I laid out for myself and the was words have power all their own. The thing I love most about found poetry is that you can take words and change up their entire meaning with so little effort, the mundane becomes beautiful and magical with just a little application of imagination. For today, a doditsu for my wild heart.

wild heart sing everything
I love, I know and hold tight
make my heart sing, move me on
everything wild

And now for the source – Wild Thing by the Troggs. If you want to know more about the song and it’s writer, check out my post Make a Joyful Noise – Day 12.

Wild thing, you make my heart sing
You make everything groovy, wild thing
Wild thing, I think I love you
But I wanna know for sure
Come on and hold me tight
I love you

Wild thing, you make my heart sing
You make everything groovy, wild thing
Wild thing, I think you move me
But I wanna know for sure
Come on and hold me tight
You move me

Wild thing, you make my heart sing
You make everything groovy, wild thing
c’mon c’mon wild thing
shake it shake it wild thing

Til next time ~Peace ~JPP

  1. I think what you wrote made a great deal of sense.
    But, what about this? what if you wrote a catchier post
    title? I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid., however suppose you added something that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Found Poetry February Day
    12 – My Wild Heart – JP the Wide-eyed Wanderer is
    a little vanilla. You could look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write news headlines to get viewers to
    click. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your blog a little
    livelier.
