Not All Who Wander are Lost

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Not for the exercise or a goal

All for the release of the static

who knew I would become addicted

Wander til the ache is in my soul

Are the results ever dramatic

lost only in thoughts unrestricted

(A Bumper Sticker Poem)

Bumper Sticker Poems – a form I created, inspired by cento and golden shovel poetry, with the following guidelines:

  • Using a bumper sticker as inspiration use the words in the bumper sticker as the first word in each line of the poem
  • The theme of the poem may or may not have anything to do with the message of the sticker
  • Title should be the words of the bumper sticker
  • Should be rhymed
  • 9 syllable lines
  • Number of lines depends on number of words on the bumper sticker

Now where did I park that car?

Hope I find my car

This big concrete maze

Swallowed it

Cell phone of no use here

I may never find it

*

Hope I find my car

I’ll be here for days

Wandering

Pressing lock a lot

Listening closely

*

Hope I find my car

Retracing my ways

Filled with hope

Hearing my horn honk

Following the sound
