My favorite thing about place-based poems is how they have the ability to evoke images of landscapes you may have never seen before. In reading them, we invent interpretations that are uniquely our own, and there’s something supernatural about that. Whether or not you’ve been to the Big Apple, or crossed the country on a whim, why not take a little literary trip with us via these away-we-go quotes?
If only photos could capture such magic. Do you keep a journal when you travel?
