Six Word Saturday

I Should Have Written It Down

I should know better by now. Driving the Ranger to work on Thursday morning, driving through a driving rain, I had this great idea for a poem about a man in a red pickup, driving through the rain on his way to work on a wet and Thursday morning. It was only just the first few lines, but it was good and, as usual, I thought “Wow, that’s pretty good! I should stop and write it down!” But nooooooooooooo. Now it’s Saturday and I’ve got nothing but a couple faded and elusive images.

It’s pretty rainy today, too, and I have to go out a little later this morning. Maybe I’ll take the same route. Maybe it’ll come back to me.

Let us pray.

  1. You have my sympathy, i share that terrible angsty feeling where the loss of something you almost had keeps surfacing, always out of reach…shoulda woulda coulda. Yep.

  2. I actually have a pad and pen sitting in the front seat of the car besides one beside my bed. It helps!

  3. I hate it when that happens! I have a pad and pen on the seat of my car as well–then I just have to try to decipher my handwriting, but at least it’s something to go on . . .

  4. I know that feeling well! We have a Trail Blazer in the family, and when lucky enough to have inspiration hit when I’m driving it, there’s a button that lets you record whatever! Most phones have that magic too, better with Bluetooth accessible for sure…no phone use while driving!

  5. I hear you. I had this great first line for a poem on my walk this morning as I saw a crow being chased by another bird, but now it’s gone 😦

  6. I have done both. Sometimes at night, I’ll slip out of bed to write down an idea or a dream. Other times I convince myself that I’ll remember. Sadly, I rarely do. 😦
