Welcome to this week’s Prose for Thought and the start of the school holidays!
I don’t know about you but I am really exhausted and am finding my creativity waning somewhat at the moment. Therefore, during the month of August, Prose for Thought is taking a holiday.
A break is a good thing. I always find that stepping away now and again means that I will come back with a renewed strength and will find myself full of creativity again and will probably write plenty of poems – especially when I find I don’t have to force one!
So, next week will be the last Prose for Thought until 4th September when it will be back stronger than ever!
In the meantime, I would like to share another poem that I wrote for NaPoWriMo last year. One that will resonate with any one taking a road trip or driving off on holiday!
A Journey So Long
People driving here and there
Where are they going? Do they care?
A journey to see how far it is
Kids make a noise, Dad’s in a tiz
Just what to do on a journey so long
Keep your temper, just stay strong
‘Are we there yet?’ young voices ask
Driving can be a thankless task
Let’s play a game, maybe I-Spy
The baby is hungry and starts to cry
Let’s all stop and have a break
How much longer is this going to take?
Not much more, don’t your fear
Turn the corner, ah we’re here!
