Poem… the traveler

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

travelers lose a little something of themselves
to those they visit, then leave behind.
what is lost becomes a journey’s wealth
of gifts received in turn from hosts that unwind
the love and knowledge voyagers take along,
gifts they get to keep or share as they move on.

the traveler will appear in a future book of poems and stories (release date | July 2020)–
