Dusted down and then stored away,
The usual regularity is now reclining.
Monumental efforts transfer modes,
Spirits land between here and there.
Enthusiasm grips the wanderlust desire,
Lethargy tugs at tiredness in one’s mind.
Promises seek to respond to the reward,
Far-away fields reveal a pleasant ambiance.
Immersing and embracing a new language,
Scents and tastes infiltrate this adventure.
Enhancement adds a hint of embellishment,
Experiences afford a bouquet of newness.
A calming collective positions itself within,
Dawn and dusk merely sneak into daily view.
Routines are back in another time and place,
This other world simply captures and refreshes.
