ARMCHAIR TRAVEL

Quadrille  #79, the word is UP

**************


Armchair travel
carries me
up and away
star skipping
cloud hopping 

or

out to sea
drifting lazily
with the tides
guided by
friendly porpoises

or

exploring mysteries
of Easter Island
Machu Pichu
Katmandu
and
Taj Mahal    

then

safe to home
 no need
to unpack bags

  4. I love the dream-hopping format. Your poem reminds me of Steppenwolf's song, Magic Carpet Ride. "I like to dream, yes, yes"

  8. Nowadays that’s my kind of travelling, Bev! No luggage, no crowds, no delays at the airport and you can sleep in your own bed.
