My Ford

Tanka Tuesday #236

Theme: Expedition (I thought a bit literally here!)

No Expedition

that’s far too much space for me

three seats too many

for two kids and some collies

the Explorer fits just right

The kids are long grown, the dogs long gone, but the 2000 Ford's still here, with just 90,000 original miles, so he'll be around a long time yet.  




  1. That's nice, Lisa! Both the car and the poem!

  2. That is fabulous! I never thought about the vehicle named "Expedition!" What a great take on the theme. <3

    1. Thanks. That's what I thought of first thing! It was true, I didn't want the bigger one, and even picked the shorter wheel-based Explorer.
