Done Traveling

I always thought
I needed to see
The Eiffel Tower and
The Great Wall of China and
The pyramids in Egypt and
The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
Or at least the pearly gates of Heaven

But that was before
I uncovered your existence
All Seven Wonders of the World
In one five-foot blessing

And now I’m done
I have no urge to travel
Any measurable distance from you

    As sweet as this is, Benjamin, the mother in me balks.

      Haha. That’s such an interesting comment, because it very much shows how many sides of our selves we have. Some of us might think romantic but other parts “balks” at the idea. Thanks for sharing you thoughts. You have me thinking. Perhaps this is what they call “laying it on too thick”

        I appreciate the romantic in you, Benjamin, and at my age cringe at the urge to have someone fill you up. The mother in me would say travel first and then find your love.

    Beautiful lines, and you have portrayed a wonderful feeling. Well done Benjamin 🙂

      Yes, that feeling where you don’t want to come down from the clouds. It’s very hard to find that height without love. Thanks so much! I appreciate you leaving your thoughts!
