oh give me a home

American folk music featured at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai


 

american west

where buffalo roamed prairies

settlers wrote ballads

grand land larger than legend

tamed by train, barbed wire, and plow

 

 

rode the mother road

Joining dVerse poets with quadrille #44 for “kicks” tonight 🙂  A “quadrille” is a poem of exactly 44 words, not including title…I counted hyphenated words as 2.

 

since nineteen

twenty-six, midway

thru roarin’ twenties,

classic car aficionados

cooly cruised or raced

rip-roarin’ midway

across america’s past,

passed, and passing

drive-ins, diners,

and wigwam motels

motoring along

singing a song

wheeling to

get their kicks

on route sixty-six!
