Photograph taken by Theresa F. Koch.

Contemplating the street lights quick flashing
They look more like beautiful stars in the sky
Why? Iím not sure if itís the early 3a.m. hour
Or perhaps the speed in which I am driving

This is the time words seem to print on my mind
Here in the solitude of my PT Cruiser driving
I write upon the typewriter that seems placed
Within the confides of my minds invisible paper

I write, then I write again not sure of the reasoning
I just know this is something I am compelled to do
Not for fame or fortune though the latter would be nice
It just happens rushing to retype it once home tonight

Am I keeping track for future generations to ponder?
Would they even care to know? I think, probably not
But its there for the finding for whomever sees it
Whenever or wherever I just do and will tomorrow

We, me do all do this? My mother did I know
Writer friends of mine share their thoughts daily
Perhaps my sons will enjoy it after I return to dust
However tomorrow at 3am driving I will write again

Good, Theresa. Strange things can happen at 3 a.m. Like creating
a poem. Even while driving. But--your poetry will be (is) enjoyed
long before the dust. Have a little faith. I like it, for instance.

I can relate very well to this, Theresa. Sometimes, I get hugely inspired while driving. I try to memorize what came to mind so I don't lose it. That's why I'm trying to understand how to work this digital voice recorder that I purchased. I think it will come in handy as my short term memory is not that great. Thank you. Love and peace,

Theresa, don't worry, you have lots of company. Writers tend to mentally rehearse before setting their thoughts to paper. Mozart as you know wrote compositions in his head without a flaw then wrote them down. I've noticed many rappers lately rapping out loud, and I must admit they do seem to be a bit touched - I think if you want to rehearse out loud on the streets, it is best to get a broken cell phone or recorder to talk or sing into. In fact that would be a good idea for people who talk out loud to themselves. Anyway, I like your honest poems. Please keep us posted! David

I seem to do the same, writing in my mind, while driving, especially on long trips. Fascinating.

Yep. Writing, it is something that we must do, to the absolute dismay from some of our loved ones.

Sometimes we have to question why we write but the answer and I quote from my 2 year old granddaugher when I asked her why she did somthing...
"Because we can."

Beautiful and quite moving. Yes you leave a legacy
and the great thing is typing while driving. ;)
I often write poetry in the middle of the night.
I write while just sitting in silence, while pondering
the dark, you name it and somehow it comes out ok.
But it is me! I think lol

Whatever the reason, it's beautiful poetry. Keep on cruising and writing! Well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
