Roads? Who Needs Them?

We will soar, and we will fly,

We will skateboard in the sky,

Land down and then soar again,

In a swift Delorean.

And to those stuck back in time,

We will recite in our rhyme,

As through air, we are flowing

Ha! β€œRoads? Where we are going

we don’t need roads.” So, we fly,

As we wave the past goodbye.

This was a fun assignment. Mish of dVerse asked us to write poetry that incorporated one of several famous movie quotes she picked out. Seeing a line from Back to the Future, I had to pick this one. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you. I suppose I could have tried to make the line fit something else entirely, but I thought I would make it a complete tribute to the movie. πŸ™‚

      1. I did mine as a tribute to the subject of the film, so I didn’t deviate too much either, though I’m not sure how many people are familiar with Quills.

      2. Right. I don’t think I’ve seen that one. I had another idea for a movie quote that wasn’t listed but won’t give it away in case I do decide to write a poem on that one.

    1. Thank you. The first two lines came to me fairly quickly after I picked my quote. It did feel rather joyful. I’m glad you felt so. πŸ™‚

  1. I so admire the strength in this poem πŸ’πŸ’ Gorgeously rendered πŸ™‚
