Let’s Coddiwomple

I’m summoning it now.
I’ve put out the request.
I need to coddiwomple
to soothe my roving
breast. It’s been a few
years; it’s way past due.
I don’t have to roam far
a day’s drive will do.
A new slice of scenery,
a new bird or food,
anything enticing or
that catches my fancy.
I’d like a long drive
maybe along the water
where I can see the
waves, some fins,
a dolphin or manatee.
Nature is fine during
the ease of these days,
not so hot that I sweat
if I meander or hike
I’d love a companion
to join me on this outing,
bring your binoculars,
a hat, your curiosity
and joy for sharing.

  1. I’ll be right there! LOL. I love it.


  2. This is a great line: “I need to coddiwomple
    to soothe my roving
    breast.” And what you describe after it sounds like just the cure 🙂 Lovely!

  4. I love this.. to be close to water, to be there under the sky… this is exactly how to journey… wonderful response.


  5. And that’s why a dance
    is always travel
    for me.. now
    and a partner
    makes it
    a circus
    fair.. of joy
    with fall leaves
    or bright electronic lights..
    as long as there are no
    dance classes on
    dance high travel farther..:)


    • Lovely, dance as a travel. Hey, I just discovered accidentally that you’re a “he” and not a “she”…and I had been calling you Katie…oops.

  6. I enjoyed the light-hearted poem you wrote here, Gayle. I think that ‘coddiwampling’ is good for the soul. Without our dreams, what do we have to live for!!


  7. This is absolutely delightful… I wanted to be there 🙂


  8. Let’s go for a drive, specially along the water or river ~ Goodness, my soul will be refreshed ~ I love the title too smiles ~


  9. Let’s coddiwomple! What a wonderful poem – my kind of travelling these days – to purposely wander with no objective in mind – and of course, by the water of any kind – picking up acorns or stones or sea shells, teasing squirrels, gazing at falling leaves – this is a wonderful light hearted, full souled travel. I’m ready!


  10. I love it. Have felt this way so many times. Wanting something new, different and a friend to share with.
