Vacation Give Away

by A. Paige White

                   The best way to know
                  you are officially on vacation;

The voice of your GPS yawns
while giving you her usually energetic report.

You are still 2 1/2 hours from today's destination.


Author's Note:

A found seashell down by the seeshore
True poetry. And not a bit pathetic.

See Gentle Summer for a look at a crab manor

LOL!! When the GPS gets bored perhaps it is time to stop for the day! Very funny look at vacation traveling.

You giggle me, locating my funny bone, with deft precision, and in only seconds, no 2.5 hour wait.

I love the imagery and idea behind this poem. It really makes one think :)

I love this short but sweet poem and ain't it the truth about GPS, whose voice though clearly female is all business and no play. if only her voice was made to sound like Marylin Monroe, I would her direction less seriously. In fact I wouldn't care where that voice led me as long as it got me there, where ever that is. The good news is that I didn't have to program a GPS to arrive at this ode, I just came by it naturally.

I love this one! Wish that you had more than 40 in your library!
