Sunday Writing Prompt – Driving

Wish we could drive somewhere again

Without a plan, the world’s our oyster

Untethered by the pandemic

Fresh snow this morning as we speak

Travellers with warm clothes playing with snow

Wish we could drive somewhere again

Divided by home or going somewhere

It hurts to think that we’re still in lockdown

Without a plan, the world’s our oyster

With vaccination, there’s hope for the future

One day we’re just reading them in text

Untethered by the pandemic*

Cascade, a form created by Udit Bhatia, is all about receptiveness, but in a smooth cascading way like a waterfall. The poem does not have any rhyme scheme; therefore, the layout is simple. Say the first verse has three lines. Line one of verse one becomes the last line of verse two. To follow in suit, the second line of verse one becomes the last line of verse three. The third line of verse one now becomes the last line of verse four, the last stanza of the poem. See the structure example below:

a/b/c, d/e/A, f/g/B, h/i/C
