Poetic Interlude

leave a comment »

Much as I am enjoying the chance to relive the days of our fabulous visit with the Morales family in Guatemala, the realities of my present day responsibilities are squeezing me right out of chances to write more at this time, so I am going to compose a few non-sentence poetic word lines that come to mind to compliment this abstract closeup image of a palm tree. It is a quicker exercise for me, because I can just make it up as I go along, don’t you know.

from snow
to see friends
in Guatemala
excited
anticipation
is met
with smiles
and miles
and miles
of unbelievable things
more appropriately measured
in kilometers
but no matter
it’s all the same
with fun stacked upon fun
and every day more
beauty and wonder
intrinsically magical things
friends become family
making it hard when it comes
that point of departure
when hearts tend to break
the time for goodbyes
when we have to fly
back home

We are missing you so much, Marco, Dunia, Marco, & Jose!
