November PAD 23: Living

Today’s Prompt: Write a travel poem

Today’s Poem:


“To travel is to live.”
Hans Christian Andersen

Goose-bumped gravel speckles the road,
trips the too smooth ride, and we pass
ports and piers, sturdy against sea-tossed air,
lines of anchored stability daring us to cruise,
ship, toss our cares aside
and launch into the water
to ensure we packed our lives.

Today’s Ponderings: Love the prompt! How appropriate for this holiday.
