Join me, you jaybird,
sleeping jarhead, I’m jealous.
Bring your jazz-filled guitar.
We’ll jet down to the jetty, you and I.
Don’t jinx this precious day:
we’ll jam on our jolly johnnyboat,
under the jewel sun,
drink juleps 'til we’re jittery,
jangled and jawless,
a joyful, jasmine-scented day.

My other writing deadlines loom, but 'tis fun to play with words. I'm finding inspiration on a list of Scrabble 8-letter words. The sounds of J-words jiggle, jostle, jerk, and just jell.
