Running -- a "Poem" for Tuesday



Running Away

I'm running, running,
  but to where
I've been to places
  here and there
Remembering them 
  hard to do
The ones I've written
  I'll show you  

Birthdays are the best 
  day to run
Some exotic place
  have some fun
Guatemala and
  local too
New York city
  China seemed new


Alaska Moscow
  Mexico
South America
  places to go
Holy Lands Istanbul
  Turkey
Even Iceland's fire
   called to me 

Sweden and Denmark
  Norway's fiords
Germany Rome
  Austria's chords  
Paris and London
   Egypt's tomb
Panama Canal
  take me home

I often tease about RUNNING AWAY FOR MY BIRTHDAY.  I've never gone by myself, Mrs. Jim and sometimes other family members run with me.  Link, click here, to a few "Running Away" posts on my other blog.  You could search it for most any of the places mentioned to see if I've been there.

These ARE nice places.  Most time when I write in first person not all of what you read is truly me.  But here, of these places I've visited after we retired or some in the summers before (I had six weeks off).  I've been to all the states, I didn't mention Hawaii and a few other nice places here.

Ha, I love your comment at the end even more than the poem. So cute that Mrs. Jim runs away with you. LOL.

Free and lovely to travel the world over on a two-wheeler. Most fortunate and most privileged, Dr. Jim!

you certainly are mighty wide, far travelled, which is incredible for all the new sites, places and traces, memories made, lost, shared, found again - how interesting indeed - stories of places and people ... talk about a wealth of world experiences!
