BeautyScope 255: My suitcase

Any travellers out there identify with this?


Linking with Rise and Write from Natalia's Out of the Writer's Closet daily writing prompts.



  1. Your poem has me considering writing an obituary for a noble bag that served me for 11 years of heavy travel before its spine broke. Bags deserve respect for all the work they do for us. I see things as very much alive in their own way, so this was very enjoyable for me. :)

    1. Oh no, its spine broke. What a vivid picture.
      We definitely form relationships with favourite bags.
      Love to read the obituary! Jazzy Jack

  2. What a story it could tell viewing valises; grappling with grips; hobnobbing with haversacks;poked in with ports; bouncing with bilums; balancing with backpacks; then pursuing a purse!
    LOve your post! D&M xxxx

  5. Oh yeah! Wonderful words in a famous picture.
    Have a nice sunday

  6. I love how you painted a picture with words! Vividly and... how should I say it, like in 3D... sculpturally? :-)
    Glad you were inspired and jumped on it! Write! Create! Hugs!

  7. I love your poem, Jack, and I'm still lined up to buy your book. I want it signed, of course.


If a topic has special significance for you, or touches you in some way, I'd love to hear your story! I will return the favour and we will gently touch hands across the miles...or kilometres :-)
