Day 18 of NaPoWriMo. Today is the 240th anniversary of the Paul Revere’s Ride. So the prompt was to “write a poem that involves an urgent journey and an important message. It could be historical, mythical, entirely fictional, or memoir-ical.” Here’s my take using a set of haikus again.
Mustang Sally With top down, racing the street to pick up date in time. In Mustang Sally, no time for chit-chat, can't miss food reservation. Home after dinner rushing to beat curfew, pulled over by police. Put candle on ledge, one if by tonight, two if by morrow we meet.
