What to take with me, going to Whitby, and what to leave behind

So we pack our stuff and leave behind
what makes us us, the things well-loved,
but not much needed for the journey.

My tired eyes, like them or not,
must come along, of course,
I can not change my sight.

Nor can I do without the nose
that I was given. It’s attached.

I do so feel the urge to take
my legs along, but should
I really?
Surely they will ache me.

My English pronunciation
I do not leave behind.
(I rather wish I could!)

We want to take
some more unneeded things
for just in case a heat wave starts
in the UK in February.

And left behind, awaiting our return
in shock and awe,
will be the persons that are us
when we are home. The house already hates us
for leaving it and thinks we are unkind.

What shall we see, whom will we find?
How will the light be over there
and will the gulls be everywhere again?

The fortuneteller and the museums’
human hand
will they be around to meet and greet?

The ferry blows its whistle.
All set we are, goodbye for now.
The journey can begin!


All set to go for a holiday πŸ™‚
We will travel via 4 harbours plus the one in Whitby! πŸ™‚ and I am looking forward to meeting Belfast David. David, see you soon!

In the mean time I hope everyone will be having a good time reading here or the blogs of my blogroll! πŸ™‚ I can recommend them all!

ps: While I am abroad, my book “Veritas” will be out for distribution on the 2nd of March. πŸ™‚ I shall schedule a posting for that event.
