A Poem: Car

Right now I feel like
A stick shift car in neutral
With my foot on the accelerator,
Rev rev rev! But going nowhere.

Yeah, so much I would like to do in my life, but disease and meds really slow things down and limits the options. Still, got to do the best with what I got I guess.

This poem hits all the right notes for me. It’s short, concise, colorful, funny, relatable. Actually, all of your poems concise and relatable. You are talented and creative.

Do you write longer poems? Do you save a copy of the poems you write on this site? I have written a few, I never bothered with saving them, I have so much poetry I don’t mind some of it flying free.

Thanks very much @Leaf ! Generally I just stick to 4 lines. No I don’t save any of them.

Well at least you have a digital record of all of them that you can access any time you like. You usually write one per day? I think I’ve seen bonus poems. How long have you been doing it? That could make a good estimation of how many you’ve done.

Just one a day. However occasionally but rarely I’ll do a bonus poem! :smile:

You got me curious, so I did a search and I found poems from 2016. I remember I took a long break from doing them at one point though.

That has the potential to be over 1500 poems my friend. Quite the legacy.
