Our Daydream Traditions – a poem

It must be special – that place you go to,

even though you never really leave the room.

I don’t know what you do when you get there,

or who you’re with when you leave me for awhile.

I suspect you’ve found your own slice of heaven,

for surely, you’d not go if it was hell.

I’ve a mind to lock the door so you can’t leave,

but something tells me just to let you go.

When you return, I never question where you’ve been.

I simply whisper “Welcome back. I missed you”!

“But Dear, you weren’t here either”, you reply.

Maybe that’s why I didn’t lock the door!

My response to today’s one-word prompt: Traditional

Jellyfish fascinate me! These unusual creatures have drifted along with ocean currents for millions of years, even before dinosaurs roamed the Earth. And despite their name, jellyfish aren’t really fish—they’re invertebrates (animals with no backbones). They have a very short life span; usually less than a year in the wild, although aquarium jellyfish that are carefully tended might live twice that long.
