For November 5th, The Prompt song is “Wild Heart” by The Bleachers featuring Sarah Bareilles. Also combining the prompt with Sarah from MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie double take Prompt. It uses homophones so words that are pronounced the same way but are spelled and mean something different. Here are Sarah’s two sets of homophones:
draft – preliminary version
draught – gust of wind; a depth of water needed to float a ship
find – locate something
fined – to have to pay a penalty

“Wild Hearts” – The Bleachers Ft. Sarah Bareilles
Life’s one draft, no perfect words imparted,
Not even the winds strong draught or gale un-fashions,
Beauty in the eye’s fake without passion;
All we need is a path to our wild hearts.
I’m not unique, observing those a part,
The wretched, disabled shown no compassion.
No coins, bills, but offensive reactions,
We all need a path back to our wild hearts.
So blaze trails ‘cross sun’s fire and find wildness.
There’s steep fines for our thoughtless mindlessness.
When we stopped talking we neglected,
Cutting off conversing without focus.
It’s why I ask you to find your wild hearts,
We’ll connect face-to-face when talking starts.
