Writing 201: Poetry Day 5

An Ode to Holidays

How I love the sun always being switched on
The soft white sand melting into my feet and fingers
The complete stillness of the perfect paradise

How I love the crystal clear waters covering my feet, calf then knees
The exotic multi-coloured fish swimming too close to your toes
And the legs getting used to the cool water from the hot sun

How I love eating out and sleeping in
No cooking, no cleaning, and no guilt
No deadlines, no housework, no lists.

Massages at will and all-inclusive cocktails on the beach
No kids, no stress, no worries,
How I long for those carefree holidays!

  1. It’s a mixture of all the best bits of all the holidays I’ve been on so far. But I think our holiday to Cuba is the closest to this poem.
