A Trip on the Waterways

40 Comments

Written for Trip the Poem Fantastic (Poetics) at dVerse, and as it’s also Day 28 for Napowrimo, this poem takes you on a fantastic journey.

We’re going on a walk,
a ‘Words on Water’ walk,
with LitFest and writers,
around the waterways
of Worcester.
A trip – not literally –
no accidents, please,
no bodies falling in the wash,
being swept downstream,
to pass through the estuary,
in Bristol, into the briny,
cold currents rushing you further
to the Atlantic Ocean
and across to visit friends
in America.

  8. Be sure and visit Texas while you’re here! Maybe just dip around Florida and come in through the gulf. The water is warmer there!

  9. Lovely water alliteration to start walking. And following the water on its way away. Very nice, and sounds like a nice walk

  10. There seem to be quite a few of you. Perhaps you all could rent a boat and paddle across. It might be a tad easier than walking. Smiles.

  12. Well, that’s one way to cross the Atlantic. I think I’ll stick with the metal bird though, even if it’s fraught with its own risks…

    • ‘eeeh, you’re so funny. I love the new Gravatar, btw 🙂

      Sure you don’t fancy a submarine? 😉

      • Hmm, depends on how many people are packed in that submarine with me…

        As for the Gravatar, I thought it was time for a change, one that reflects my blog. Sadly, my facial expression is a little too smooshed, but I was too lazy to retake the photo. Ah, the benefits of getting older. One just doesn’t care anymore…

        • mmm … know what you mean … they reckon they’re nasty smelly things, so wouldn’t do for me with my hypersensitive nose …

          ‘too lazy’ heh-heh … you can fool some of the people … besides which, you look gorgeous, as ever 🙂
