Written at the Poets of Ohio's Little Smokies Workshop


Although I love to explore people and places,


I avoid being a tourist, one who never blends in


with the scenery.


 


 In the country, I walk to the rhythm of crickets,


falling leaves or nightingales.


 


In cities, I stretch my limbs to the laughter of children,


the whispers of friendly gossip, the silence of lovers.


Even alone, I belong.


 


Reading a book, I am reincarnated


in other lands, other times, other dreams.


Always a traveler, never a tourist..

Country, cities, reading a book, outdoor nature all draw us into ourselves to cheris time well spent. Learning new things by traveling as a tourist is exciting and this poem is exciting too.
