Poetry 101 Rehab: Away

badge-rectangle

This week’s prompt:  Away

Once a year

Post Christmas

We pack the car

Head to the coast.

It’s our getaway

Our time to refresh ourselves

Let go of the daily grind

The get away.

A few weeks of rejuvenation

Where we renew our souls and spirits

To take on the year ahead.

Amongst old friends

We sit under shady trees

Sip cold cans of beer

And chew the fat till late.

The hassles of our jobs forgotten

We raise our glasses

And toast the New Year.

The yearly ritual now done and dusted

We bid farewell to holiday friends

The car now laden with beachside tales.

We journey back into the heat

Open our windows and pray for a breeze.

As the New Year begins we ponder our break

It’s always good to be going away.
