Poem 6, Prompt 18

Jack and I, we hit the road
We took a trip by van
We trundled up the highway
Seeking seawater and sand

It took three days to get there
Spending nights in one-horse towns
Singing shanties by the fire
Filling silence up with sound

Destination beach was reached
Mid-afternoon day four
A heaving mass of travellers
Cheek to jowl along the shore

No room for sitting calmly
Dipping toes or playing songs
Jack and I felt overwhelmed
All caught up in the throng

So once day five was underway
We turned the van around
And we drove back the way we’d come
Back to those tiny towns

Quiet little sleepy spots
Nothing to really do
But sit and sing and feel the sun
A holiday through and through
