Poetry for The Moment – should you not be traveling.
Imagine. For a second Sunday in a row, I have a poem about travel to share. I’m not searching for these. They seem to be finding me.
This time, the poem is actually about NOT traveling – which we do sometimes.
I am not a nomad. I travel six or seven times a year but I spend more time at home than away. This poem, by former US Poet Laureate Billy Collins who was the first recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for Humor in Poetry, celebrates the time we spend at home. It encourages us to appreciate our time not traveling as much as our time traveling.
