Travel – Your Weekly Poetry Prompt 10/8/2021

Summer has passed and many of us have completed our season of travels. Some still have adventures planned and others may wish they could just stay home. Please share or link to your travel poem in the comments.

On Monday, I will share a Villanelle I wrote about travel. If you want to try a Villanelle, here is a description of the form:
The villanelle is a 19 line poem which consists of 5 verses of three (tercets) and a concluding quatrain. There are refrained (repeated) lines throughout the poem that are established in the opening verse. The first and third lines of the opening tercet are repeated alternately in the last lines of the succeeding stanzas; then in the final stanza, the refrain serves as the poem’s two concluding lines. Using capitals for the refrains and lowercase letters for the rhymes, the form could be expressed as:
A1 b A2
a b A1
a b A2
a b A1
a b A2
a b A1 A2
