Poetry Here (Mostly)

Way to Go


You visited the city

where I have long resided,

not so easy getting ‘round,

neither one of us can drive.

 

First strolled through my neighborhood,

showed you all the grocery stores,

then, together, walked my dog,

obviously, you wanted more.

 

Had to visit those locales

in your glossy bright brochure,

places tourists must not miss,

I’d forgotten their allure.

 

We took the number 7

through areas of working class

high school kids, screaming babies,

long ride, bus did not go fast.

 

But, the Park destination,

wild woods and cultivation,

peace of Japanese gardens,

surpassed your expectations.

 

Handy to have a senior’s

pass, good for the trolley too,

Little Italy, Hillcrest,

we could have gone to the Zoo.

 

35 to Ocean Beach,

then to the Reservation

had mountain view, big buffet,

and blackjack conversation.

 

You’re home from your holiday,

happy for our excursions,

I’m glad getting where we went

worth effort of exertion.

  1. Great poem. I have missed reading your poems of late. Sounds like you were a great hostess and had a good time. It is true when we have a guest, we end up becoming visitors in our own cities as well as presenting part of lives to our guest.
