Stuck in Jam

Trapped in the middle of a weary night
A heavy rain ceaselessly pouring down
With a throbbing headache, feeling uptight
Stuck inside my car on the way to town
	
A sea of idling cars is all there is
Tail lights blinking and honking all around
Not in this trodden space I’ll find some peace
Nothing else to do but heave a sigh sound 

Stuck in traffic jam, patience hardly find
Clock hands turn snail-paced as car lights beguile
Flashes of thoughts run through my anxious mind
As I sit ill at ease for a long while

Traffic eases up, cars moving at last
Almost done with this poem while time passed

What a descriptive poem Elaine :-) I am thankful we don't get long queues on our small roads, we have no motorways for traffic jams to form on. I never know where or when my muse will strike and always carry a notebook and pencil with me:-) hugs jan xx
