Daydreaming and Driving

Country living means driving everywhere My mind wanders, forms an image or shape, From trees and wooden stumps- I must declare; I can see figures, my mind does escape, Watching road rules, avoid insurance red tape. Fungus on the bark of a leaning tree, The wicked witch of the west, is what I see, Dogs by a ditch are really a shrub, Really beautiful but woe is me, Now retired, I’ve joined the daydreaming club. Written by Lee Ramage September 10, 2011 For Dr. Ram Mehta Contest “Dizain” Won 5th Place

    So I'm not the only one who sees distorted images when daydreaming and driving. Hope your club has room for one more, Lee. This is the first witty entry I saw in the contest. Congratulations! Love, Carolyn

    Thanks Kashinath, however I used the syllable counter so unless its wrong, there are 10. I can't believe that you actually count everyone's syllables. Lee

    Thanks Margaret, appreciate you taking the time to read. I believe you are from England. My daughter lived in Bristol for a year and taught there. Her boyfriend was here in Canada so she came home after a year. She loved it! Lee

    Lee when you discussed writing this in your soup mail to me, I had to come and see it. You picked a unique topic. I think if you have a lot of cool scenery on that country road, visualizing these odd shapes is a fun thing to do. Just don't daydream yourself off the road. haha. Typo line 2 second stanza. I think you mean wicked witch. I'll answer your soupmail about this poerty form dizain. Luv, Andrea

    I do that and my gf yells at me. I think 'poets,' like you and me, just see everything metaphorically.

    I am usually alone when I do it, so no one to yell at me, but I do keep an eye on the road Out here where I live, usually no traffic but you have to watch for deer. Always a dreamer! Thanks for reading my poem. Lee
