Love Will Travel
Across the miles, family missed.
Absent by choice, I pay the price.
Travel being far less frequent
than this heart might hope it to be,
phone calls, texts, and video calls
are my only compensation.
miles fall away before this heart.
What is distance, but a number?
Even tenfold, love will travel.
This poem is my response to Poetics: Exploring the realm of Korean Literature, the prompt from Sanaa at dVerse ~ Poets Pub. Sanaa discusses the kasa, Korean verse in which content is described or exposed through parallels. It usually is written in balanced couplets. Either line of a couplet is divided into two groups, the first having three or four syllables and the second having four syllables.
