Koh Samui motorbike, in torrential monsoon,
Juan Le Pin, pizza, by the light of the moon.
Paris Pigalle, strolling the bohemian street,
Metro at midnight, stilettos pinch feet.
Boston Greyhound, to Cape Cod’s chowder,
My lobster, wanderlust screaming louder and louder.
Saint Lucian wild horses, galloping fast,
Visiting ghosts of pirates past.
Whale watching, smiling as dolphins play,
Hot summer memories in Byron Bay.
Cuba’s hip sway, with rhythm and cars,
Rum, hurricane, prostitutes, in mambo bars.
Cuckoo clock scenery in European snows,
Riding the mountains, then warming cold toes.
Windsurfing in Greece, with a high school romance,
Backgammon, gin, laughter an intoxicating dance.
Washington politics, Philadelphia then New York,
Monuments, pretzels, animated teenage talk.
Wandering the world is a constant learning,
So, how can you contain this basic yearning?
