Not Meant To Drive

Written for:  Poetic Asides April 2016 Challenge – Day 5-Two-for-Tuesday
Write an experienced and/or inexperienced poem

Written in form of Luc Bat, a Vietnamese style of poetry where rhyme scheme is six and eight lines:  xxxxxA, xxxxxAxB, xxxxxB, xxxxxBxC, etc.

I was always afraid
to drive, but was persuaded I’d pass
test. Took lessons at last.
Instructor was a blast, he chewed
gum to relax, eyes glued
to the road. Without clue, felt ill
each session, yet I still
took test–failed, lack of skill. Oh well.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are in the process of returning to New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
