in our golden years
dreams of travel to and fro
yet, nowhere to go

One day soon perhaps it’ll be safe to travel.
Yes, I hope so Sadje. We don’t fly anymore but I see road trips in our future. 😉
I hope the days carefree travel becomes a reality again. Although, I’m liking flying less and less…
My hubby and I don’t fly anymore, but we love to take road trips.
Can you not hike anywhere?
Yes! We can walk, hike, run or drive anywhere where I live.
What a great photo and using the jet stream is brilliant! I love your senryu… I’m with you. I’m not flying any more. LOL! <3
Thank you, Colleen! I wish my phone took better pictures. That particular day the sky was full of beautiful jet streams. Usually, they are not that wide or that color.
Great shot! 💖
Beautiful, happy and content with each other 💜💜
Yes, thank you, Willow. 😊
Aw, such a sad poem, Eugenia! I started venturing out locally this year. I still don’t feel comfortable leaving the country, but I know I will do so one day. I hope you will as well. 🙂
We venture out locally, as well, but our days of flying are over. Back in the day, I enjoyed flying but it has changed so much and not for the better, IMO.
Every age group has lost time from their lives due to Covid 19. Retired people who looked forward to travel in retirement and time with their grandchildren, children who endured remote learning, people who worked from home…women who could not return to work because they lacked child care, marriages postponed…You captured a sense of that lost time in your poem, Eugi! <3
So true, Cheryl. Sadly, lost time is something we can never get back. ❤️
Thank you, Derrick.
A lovely, evocative poem, Eugi 💕🙂
Thank you, Harmony!❤️
So much said in a few words.
Thank you! 😊
I am hoping all is about to change. I’m looking forward to travelling again🙂
Let’s hope so, Pat! We all need a change for the better.
Beautifully and poignantly versed musings for our times ❤
Thank you! ❤️
Hope you find some place to go, this pandemic destroyed many trips, but little by little travelling is getting safe again.
We are an hour away (driving) from our favorite place to visit. It’s safe to go there now so we are planning our trip.😉
Oh one day soon Eugi..i pray
Me too, Mich!

Thank you, Gwen, and I’m ready to travel too. I can already smell the fresh mountain air. ❤️
awwww…. I hope you guys get to travel soon, Eugi…. it seems like things are getting better globally in regards to COVID, no?
I think things are getting better too, David, relating to your comment about COVID.
