Blogging 201: Day 5: Map, Ode, Metaphor


Day 5: Map, Ode, Metaphor


Philadelphia to New York City

Philadelphia to New York City
Busy highways, sometimes slow
Drivers weaving in and out
Fingers raised, voices shout
Cars crash, complete stop
Now we have a traffic jam


About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

    As someone who took that same route many, many times in the past, your poem immediately spoke to me. Channeling the essence of the NJ Turnpike in such a short poem is quite a feat!
