Poetry doesn’t take a vacation
You may find words traveling in couplets or stanzas
arranging themselves on billboards and menus.
Words whirling and swirling around you on airplanes
with passports and tickets, and great expectations.
No rest stops for haiku, no breaks, no free time.
No retirement for rhythm, no week-ends for rhyme.
Poetry doesn’t take a vacation.
Poetry is always, forever, full time.
Have a wonderful vacation and may you find a place for poetry where ever you go and whatever you do this coming week.
