I AM TAKING ONLY ONE DRESS
I wanted to write about the trip
but I couldn’t find the words
for those places at once so
peaceful and full of what was & wasn’t there.
I struggled to find the words
That eluded me earlier
Words that describe this peaceful place
Each word found then discarded
At last I have found the words
There is harmony
Between people and animals
Tranquility in the living of life
All is quiet no harsh words spoken
There is order in the daily life
I will continue to travel
There are seven more islands
That I will visit
My journey is mapped and ready
I am only taking one dress
