To live vicarious

through the swifts

with sudden lows

and lovely lifts.

To be, a time,

a locust tree

waving my leaflets

like some sea.

The porch my sand bar,

sky its waves,

quizzically see

how life behaves.

Some things are just

exactly same

by mountains wild

or oceans tame.

Some vacations

are better ought

to be not gone on,

not leave this spot.
