Coast Along or See the Coast

This week the prompt for the weekly haiku challenge at Ronovan Writes are the words Car & Coast. Mine came from some memories of the past.


Where I grew up in Florida there were places on the beach where you could still drive your car along the sand. This haiku came from those memories.

Riding in the car

Making tire tracks on the sand

Waves crashΒ along coast

While living in New Jersey, there was a back road with a big hill that my husband and daughters would take on their way home from school. In the winter, with snow on the ground, they would have a bit of fun. [bctt tweet=”My husband would turn off the motor, open the windows and coast down the hill. ” username=”GaylWright”]I guess it gave them a feeling of being in a sleigh! The following haiku was drawn from those memories.

Riding in the car

Open windows, turn off gas

Coast right down the hill
