Poetry 101 Rehab: Driving

Drive don’t

Walk

Home

Now

Got to go

Let’s go


In response to Andy Townend’s Poetry 101 Rehab.

  1. Getting home is the main point of the exercise, I think. Not the driving so much as expediting a timely arrival. Your poem communicates impatience. Not the journey, but the arrival?

    As one who never did get a drivers license–because I never did manage to develop credible driving skills–I walked or, more rarely, rode a bicycle to get to where I needed to go. My typical walk to work was 25 to 45 minutes. Good exercise, good thinking time. Not always good at arriving on time. While it is nice, I guess, since I’ve been married, to be driven wherever I want to go, I miss the daily walks.

    1. Thank you for your thoughtful comment, Liz! You’re right that walking helps one to settle, calm down and think. But then, being driven has its advantages too! And you can always walk as well 🙂

  2. Did I miss something or is Andy Townend now the new (moderator) for 101 Rehab? Just wondering? Liked your short poem by the way.

    1. You didn’t miss anything, that’s me who is missing out! Andy kindly agreed to run the Rehab for me as long as I’m busy and/or as long as he can manage 🙂 So now it’s more or less his!
