Notes: 

This is a Poetic Asides prompt: For today's prompt, write a "what got you here" poem. For instance, write a poem about a mode of transportation like your car, bike, horse, etc. Or write a poem about what "got you here" as a human being or writer (like what got you started writing, perhaps). Or write a poem about what brought you to this blog. Or whatever other interpretation you might have. The road photo came from http://www.flickr.com/photos/stuckincustoms/ and the Portland photo is one of mine.
