I went to the Cape. We ate and we ate.
Fried clams and green beans,
walked through fields of flowers and hay.
We went to the beach, we went to the gym,
watched movies, walked laps.
With 3 little dogs on leads.
The skies were so blue, low humidity too.
A treat for a girl from the city.
I flew back all tan, my I Pad in hand.
Determined to bring back the feeling,
of time to be wasted and meals to be savored.
And friends to be held in your heart.
Then my phone up and died, I left my camera behind,
And I had a mysterious rash.
Poison Ivy it seems, has invaded the dreams,
of living beach life back at home.
Now I'm back and I'm itchy, so occasionally bitchy,
the saying, it runs through my head:
"Where ever you go, you take yourself with you".
