A Traveller's Poem ✈️

A Poem by Carola
"

A silly, fun poem which I wrote the day as my daughter was flying off on a holiday to the Mediterranean, so I texted my poem to her phone.

"
Travel safely my dear,
To avoid any possible fear,
Imbibe in your favourite beer,
That’ll give you plenty of cheer,
High altitude & you may feel queer,
Your head’ll be groggy, foggy & unclear,
Part of the mirth & fun, you & others cohere,
Enjoy now. But tomorrow...haha!!  😮 😵 😛 😴
Your zigzagging journey awaits you through the blear!

As a young girl I wanted to be an Air Hostess. Everything about the career fascinated me but as I grew older other things intrigued me. Now I have a miriad of experiences under my belt but the clouds still hold me entranced every time I venture through 'Snow' in the sky! Beautiful little number.

Even tho I enjoy your poem, even more, I enjoy imagining how your daughter may have felt when she received it. I love poems that relate to someone's specific everyday life, especially when the back-story is shared, so we can put ourselves into your shoes for a bit. I can imagine that your daughter has had many occasions to be delighted, possibly dismayed, or at least feeling showered with attention, as you send her your unique POV in poems! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I think the intuition knows best so it should be followed.

A mother's love is never out of reach of those heart strings. I'm sure she wore a smile from ear to ear upon reading this!

A wave to you kelly 👋
The Mediterranean is a long way, so I imagine the trip will wear on her. This lighthearted poem probably made her smile.
