BP: Haiku Dialogue: Travel

This week’s theme at the Haiku Foundation’s Haiku Dialogue was travel, and once again, the submitted haiku were chosen and edited by Tia Haynes. One of this pedometer geek’s haiku was chosen for inclusion in the column. It is as follows:

day trips…

visiting area sights

before staycations

~Nancy Brady, 2020

Growing up, our family had some outstanding vacations. We traveled west one summer seeing the sights of the Grand Canyon, the Petrified Forest, Disneyland, San Francisco, Yellowstone, and so much more. More often than not, though, we visited local places within the confines of our state. We visited the Warther Museum in Dover; we toured Schoenbrunn village, a historic Moravian settlement; we went to the United States Air Force museum in Fairborn during various vacations. Back then, they were our vacations. It is only now that they have been upgraded to staycations. My parents were obviously way ahead of the times.

Read all the haiku that Tia selected at http://www.thehaikufoundation.org and  check out the theme for next week.

 

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    Now we’ve got imposed staycations… at least with spring we can take a walk around the block – even if we can’t hug our neighbors. I have no idea what the next two weeks will be like since all of our schools have been shut down. Even my hubby is considered flexible in regards to essential personnel and maybe working from home for the good part of the next two weeks as well.

    I’d say start stocking up now. While it wasn’t really all that bad when I went shopping yesterday – the most amazing thing was that the toilet paper isle was completely empty. And folks were saying that other stores were also void of that particular product.

    There was food and every row had someone from the store restocking shelves. It was only a tad crowded because one of the local schools had a teacher in service day so families had their children along in the store. Only a mild zoo like atmosphere. The most crowded I’d ever seen the place at 10 am on a Friday.
