Travel Poem

Les Voyageurs, Marseilles, France

battered  luggage  by Joanne Faries 

wobbly wheel
worn zipper
strap caught in
carousel circulation
errant side trips
security gropings
overstuffed treats
ocean breeze
mountain snow
ten year adventure
hauled to attic 

make room for ultra-lite
advanced technology

  1. Wonderful images in this! Very tight and precise poem. Nicely done, Joanne. :)

  2. Another first class poem, Joanne!


  3. These words resonate with me: "Make room for ultra-lite." There's something very clever and somewhat paradoxical in your word pairings and this phrase. I love it.

  4. 'hauled to attic'....atta girl...just in case that new fangled ultra light advanced technology doesn't last through another ten year adventure. I'm so amazed that you say and paint such a detailed picture in so few words.
