Vacation is Poetry Lived

Daily Prompt: Tourist Trap

Photographers, artists, poets: show us VACATION.

Don & Sandra 'Cating'The sun shining bright and hot
the water clear and aqua-blue
on a beach blanket, secluded spot
summer breezes, warm then cool

The east coast or the west coast
the gulf or the lake
Sometimes by the pool, just being human toast
swimming, relaxing, and catching rays

Oh, and those times in the mountains
hiking up the trails,
waterfalls, flowers and natural fountains
Camping out and telling old tales

Shopping in quaint shops
admiring local cunning motifs
Checking out the tourist stops
finding the best places to eat

Whether the mountains, the lake, or the shore,
caves, inland park or a country hideaway,
spending time with someone you adore
makes a vacation the best of days.

-Donald R. Sansbury, 2013
