Caress clutch and gas
Accelerate down driveway
Road quickens your pulse
It’s been three weeks since I’ve written any poetry. I decided it was time to get off my lazy butt and write again. The Wednesday Poetry Prompt at Writer’s Digest was to write about an object. I realized car was three letters to make it an acrostic, it would have three lines so I decided to write a haiku acrostic about my hubby’s new toy – 1978 Datsun 280Z. He bought a manual even though he never learned to drive a standard transmission. What am I going to do with that man?
He is teaching himself how to drive his new toy. In the meantime, a certain 16 year old young lady needs to get a permit. I just said goodbye to my hubby; he is off to work. He is taking the 280Z. I asked him if he was seriously going to take it on the highway. He said, You have to start at some point. I replied, O boy! I hope he knows what he is doing.
