November PAD Challenge Day 8: Today’s prompt is to write a ‘paranormal’ or ‘normal’ poem.
Which Will It Be?
Used to dream of leaving
Normal, so had lunch there
one day, to launch two week
road trip to Montana.
But, Montana brought
flood of memories to be sorted,
which felt a bit like paranormal,
because I’d never been before.

Notes: This actually did happen. After seeing the film, Leaving Normal, we had lunch in Normal, Ill. as the beginning of a two week road trip. I’d wanted to see Montana for the longest time, but when we crossed into the state, I experienced an incredible flood of memories, seeing them from a very different perspective than ever before. I will never forget Montana.
