Dear Vietnam

A free verse poem about one of my dream destinations

Dear Vietnam,

I’m yearning

for your warm touch,

welcome-to-Vietnam hugs,

and batches of Vietnamese street food.

Winter in Canada

is like living in an igloo

for four months;

the frosty temperature

nips me in the body,

so hard that I’m hurting.

Dear Vietnam,

Please save me

from the ugliness

of snow storms,

cheek-pinching cold,

and icy grounds.

The first thing I want

at this moment

is for you, Vietnam

to hold my hand,

as I’m strolling around beautiful Hanoi.

Dear Vietnam,

I’d love for you

to accompany me,

as I’m floating and swimming

in the seas of Phu Quoc.

Before I know it,

it’ll be time for me

to visit you,

which I’m waiting

patiently and quietly for.
