An Endless Journey

Here is a poem I wrote yesterday for Poetics Aside blog. I hope you enjoy it!

Around the World

I travelled the oceans far and wide
from sea to shining sea,
swam with the dolphins
surfed big waves
lolled in the sun happily.

I climbed mountains high
in cold and rain
from plateau to snow-capped peak,
skiied up and down through twists and turns
each experience, bold and unique.

You, too, can journey this big wide world;
see creatures and vista's nooks,
just find a spot to relax awhile
and get lost in your favorite book.

That is really really cool. At first i was like "wow, where did she swim with dolphins & which mountains has she been to"... and your last sentence made me think "oh! what book did she read?".... hehe Good stuff Laurie!
