Wish You Were Here

Dear Sara,
Having a Wonderful Time!
The food in Italy-sublime
And Norway-your cousin Hans-sweet
New Zealand climbed peaks, saw sheep
Spain loving the tapas and wine
Costa Rica, had a blast on the zip line
Rode great rapids in North Carolina
Now Virgin Islands digging my toes in sugar sand and
Amazed at the turquoise hue of the sea
Don't you wish you were me?

Written for Poetry Jam at poetryjaam.blogspot.com where Laurie invites us to go on vacation! (in 15 lines or less) and OLN at dversepoets.com This is my bucket list--enjoyed by some fictional character, thought it would be a fun way to twist the prompt. Happy Days :-)

  8. Now I don't need to make a bucket list... it would be the same as yours, Sara. (I especially like thoughts of the Virgin Islands and turquoise sea).

  14. It's great to have a Bucket List. I like some of your ideas! I actually did one item - traveled in a car cross country, solo, to deliver a car to our daughter in college. It was quite the experience.

    This "Wish you were here" postcard is a perfect answer to the prompt! Thanks also for your affirming comment at my blog on bipolar. Peace, Amy

    1. Hi Amy!! That must have been quite an adventure to go solo. I came from West to East with my ex in 1982. Toyota pick up with camper shell, a parakeet and no A/C. No fun either....Thank you for your kind words:-)
