In this volume of poetry you can share the feeling of standing near a volcano, riding a catamaran in Hawaii, or eating reindeer stew in Finland. You may swim with turtles, go parasailing, or climb the Eiffel Tower.
Even as travel photos evoke memories of places you have been, so do lines of poetry. They stir up the joy and laughter of another time and even cause one to contemplate new revelations or mysteries discovered along the way.
I'll take a patch of blue sky to sew into this gray morning,
a warm breeze around my shoulders,
a bit of sun-washed sand under my feet when I get up.
Why can't I bring home paradise?
I'd let you feel it before it sinks back into the lining of my suitcase.
