#NaPoWriMo Car Talk

April 30, 2017 1 Comment

If we could hear the stories antique vehicles might reveal

About all their owners and their follies if only they could

Terrible decisions, stormy weather, shattered windshield

Narrow escape followed by a downhill run through the wood

Finally in this time they are treated like rare treasures at last

They represent the beauty, the art, and the culture of the past

Rumbling pipes, paint jobs and restoration done with pride

The hod rod is a symbol. It is more than just a fabulous ride.

It has been a wild and wonderful ride all month on the poetry train.  Keep up with the poets at #NaPoWriMo  until next April.  I urge you to write, read, and recite to enrich your life.  Words can lead to amazing places.

 

Ride the Poetry Train

The journey on this train takes place in the dark, starlit cabins full of images

Rush through the night collecting emotions, memories, deeper instincts

Collecting these soul-shaper consciousness experiences into words takes place

In the dining car over tea and coffee in the morning, and in the lounge all day

Poets sit in silence to straighten out the prose that spills onto the pages

Comparison is healthy, normal, and confusing as each work grows into itself

The train is full of poets yet each one of us has a different destination and fate

In prompts, styles, discussions and reverie we join in a common mission

To bring forth the poetry that only we as poets can bring up from the mine

History holds poets and potters in high regard, finding all the meaning

Of civilization in broken ceramic chards and discarded recorded words
