Time to travel

Suitcase packed
Tickets in hand
Ready to head off
To distant lands

Packing is done
The kids were no help
The dog bounces round
With a triumphant yelp

Weather checked
Adjustments made
Won’t let the weather
Ruin our day

Excitement mounting
Taxi due
Ready to see
Somewhere new

Horn from outside
We make a quick dash
Thrusting suitcases
Into the boot with a crash

The laden car lurches forward
With questionable stability
We glance at each other
Is this a liability?

Then over the horizon
Just out of reach
We finally get a view
Of that wonderful beach

Family together
Precious time
These are the memories
That will live in our minds

Much Love.

    1. Thanks Geoff. Just inspired by Marsha’s travel prompt. Although we do have a few days in London booked in a couple of weeks time, so I’m excited for that. 🙂 KL ❤

  1. I’m ready to go too! I could picture the entire poem in my mind 🙂 Thank you for that imagery. I love the beach so much. Great use of my prompt too ❤

    1. Thank you so much for the kind comment. Haha, it’s always frantic, organised, chaos in my house when setting off on holiday. KL ❤

  2. You did a fabulous job of combining all those challenges, KL. Very talented – and I love the poem. 🙂 I love both of your quotes, too. that last one may become a permanent one for me.

    1. Thank you Marsha, I loved both quotes and couldn’t decide between them. I don’t always get time to join in all the challenges I’d like to so this seemed a good opportunity. 🙂 . KL ❤

      1. I know exactly what you mean, KL. Combining them is the way to go. You get close to people after a while, and you don’t want to let anyone down by not playing! But you have to live and breathe. I’m so glad you are finding a way to do that. Well done!
