A small blue trunk - it wasn't too hard to lift
I looked inside and what did I see?
A doll ? And all her clothing ? This is for me?
"The heck with the doll" I said as I pitched her out.
"I want to use this for traveling here and about."
And so I began my imaginary trips
Packing clothes and stuff for cruises on ships.
Or maybe I'd take it on my little red wagon
Hoping to find a most friendly green dragon.
My small blue trunk was my way of learning
What life I wanted and obviously was yearning.
And years later I am still packing for pleasure
Traveling with my best friend- our life is an adventure!
traveling with your love,ReplyDelete
your spirits always sail above..

This potluck is going to be an emotional one.
Great piece,it must be so freeing to feel that anticipation of travel - usually my travel entails working up in the northern part of Canada and I don't see such lovely trees....ReplyDelete
