I’m on a tropical vacation
Fruit drink elation
In an island nation.
Sipping by the seaside
Watching the tide
Oh, I must confide,
This relaxes the tired and weary.
And days become bleary,
Then eyes become teary
As I realize that the conclusion
Is nearing its completion.
Reality clears my vision
As I down the last little flute
Say bye to grapefruit,
Reality slowly dilutes…
It seems like I arrive and then blink
Glass empty of drink,
Then it’s time to think…
Of saying to this paradise, “Shalom!”
Of going back to sweet home…
And greeting the garden gnome.

Fun thing about this one – it seems to pick up where week 25 left off! That hasn’t happened before. 😄
I stroll to the water’s edge.
I watch the humans walking,
As I peer from behind a hedge.
All are jangling – what they call “talking,”
Going about the daily routines,
As if I were not even here.
I step out where I can be seen.
I recall the armlet – human, I appear.
It is so interesting above the water;
Hard surface below my feet,
And the sun seems so much hotter.
I wipe sweat from my brow – I’m beat!
I return to the pier, release the pin,
The magical bracelet falls free;
My feet are replaced by fin,
As I dive back into the sea!
