Prose for Thought – The Holiday

Prose for Thought – The Holiday



Welcome everyone to this week’s Prose for Thought. Thank you to all of you who linked up last week. By the time you read this, I should have visited everyone!

I don’t know about you but at this time of year, despite the fact that I love the festivities of all things leading up to Christmas, I do start yearning for the sun and the holiday season again. Travel seems to be the in thing in the blogging world at the moment, so, what better thing to do than to write a poem about holidays?!




The Holiday

So what’s it to be and where shall we go?
Will it be sunshine or will it be snow?
Will it be city or will we choose beach?
For some the budget is way out of reach
I’ll tell you what is not for me, is camping
Unless maybe it’s this thing that’s called glamping

Now I’d really love to experience a cruise
That is sure to take away the winter blues
Floating around without any care
Letting the Captain just take us there
The Baltics, Canaries or the Carribean
I don’t mind – it’s new cultures I’m seeing

A beach all day for me can be boring
Just watching others just drinking or snoring
I would like to go off and explore
But occasionally relax – much less of a bore
Finding new places is right up my street
You never know who or what you might meet

Then, of course, there is the good old UK
Although the weather changes from day to day
You can’t beat the seaside fish and chips
Searching in rock pools, in the sea taking dips
Candy floss, arcades and yummy ice creams
The laughter of children mixed in with their screams

So what is it that you’re looking for?
Is it a relaxing one or do you want more?
Do you want to chill and just take it slow?
Or are you too restless, want to be on the go?
But whatever it is, may I just say
That all of us need it, the holiday.

    Love this – oh yes, a holiday would be very nice right now! I’m not really one for camping or lots of time on the beach either but love exploring new places. Love how you’ve managed to include so many different types of holiday in this.
