The wheels on the bus go round and round




Four, I say , four days till the Poetry Bus will be away with the mixer drinking diesel. Have you been down to the 'garage' or taken the Plath less travelled? Will there be a sonnet on the bonnet, will a villanelle ring the bell, will rhyme leave on time or free verse reverse out of the bus stop like a wheeled bat out of hell into the blogosphere? Only YOU can decide. Be there, or be somewhere else entirely nagged and niggled by regret that you weren't there.




A quick word now from Mel 'Braveheart' Gibson.




" This is one small drive for Bus Poets, but one intergalactic mystery trip for PoetBuskind.We may be speeding , we may have no lights tax or insurance, we may be pulled over by the intenet superhighway patrol, they may take our names and addresses, they may even take the bus, our money, our freedom but they'll never take our poetry!

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't car, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me

Amazon better deliver tomorrow as I cannot take the Plath option right now.
I could always write about The Garage of my dreams.
Still hoping it's a comedy. At least in parts.

It'll be one 'too-big' drive for this poet I'm afraid. I wont be joining you on this trip TFE but will be thinking of you all - have a great trip.

I'm on the wrong Plath, I fear! It keeps twisting back on itself, and I'm becoming ill from going in circles. Ah, I know. The bus stops here! See you Monday.

You get more poetic by the post! I took the Plath less travelled too and managed to write two poems - I have saved one for the bus on Monday - I am already waiting at the bus stop with my sleeping bag and my flask - but have put the other one on today if you want to take a look.

Karen said...

I'm running alongside already.

I'm firing up the old Versinating-Poetator-XT-500 (good model, the XT-500, not like that XT-750 they brought out after) as we speak. Hopefully, wheels will turn, cogs will mesh, things will go sproing-tinkle-pop and a freshly-minted poem will drop into the basket ready for Monday.
