Freeway Frustration – A Poem

As I was getting ready for work this morning this short “mathmatical series” poem came to mind, this time counting syllables in multiples of two. And since the link is still open over at dVerse Poets Pub Form for All I thought I’d share it. It’s a bit sillier than what I usually write, but was inspired by a recent drive to Seattle, Washington that should have taken three hours and ended up taking four and a half hours.

Freeway Frustration

Fast lane
Passing traffic
creeping slowly, almost crawling

Break lights
Sudden stopping
foiling swiftness, stuck in traffic

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. We were re-routed and stuck in a big traffic jam awhile back too. It took us 3 times as long to get home as usual. Afterward, I was so thankful that I had enough gas! haha!
    Thanks for writing and sharing , Linda!

    • I think the only thing missing from the recipe is the starting time of the event we were heading for! Thankfully we made it in time, but freeway traffic can sure be frustrating. 🙂 Peace, Linda
