A Mid-Autumn Night’s Dream

Poetic Asides November 2013 Poem-A-Day Challenge – Day 29: a “commercial” poem

A Mid-Autumn Night's Dream

Travel
destinations
to warm, tropical places.
Palm trees and white, sandy beaches
in seductive locales.

Bathing
suits and flip-flops,
umbrella drinks, fresh seafood.
Temptations too strong to resist
on cold November days.

Exchange
snow plows and scarves
for jet skis and scuba gear,
woolen gloves for suntan lotion.
The islands are calling.
