Talk the Walk


I’m traveling light

No heavy baggage for me

What’s the burden for?



For Jingle Poetry on Trips, Travel, and Vacation


For those who see beyond labels.

Look who’s walking
To the boat from the water
To the heart from an outsider
To the cross from the manger
To save us sinners.

For the pilgrims here on earth.

  2. You really did this well. With baggage like that who wants to go on a vacation with us?

    The video was thought provoking and so were these words:

    Look who’s walking

    To the cross from the manger

    Thank you for this post! πŸ™‚

    how many of us walk around with heavy baggage..when we can just lighten it, by shedding whats holding us back…

      I have never yet met a person who didn’t carry a baggage at one point in their life. The good news is it can be surrendered. It can be lifted away πŸ™‚

    “heavy baggage” is too good! that baggage is really heavy.

    the second one is superb.


  7. Jessica Says:

    I like that haiku. Always travel light, just a pity memories can be so heavy!

  8. Ouch. That baggage sounds painfully heavy!

    • bendedspoon Says:

      One is heavy enough and I had 5 of them altogether at one time? I couldn’t move and could hardly breath! Thank God that He took it all away! πŸ™‚

    I love all of this, how it applies to the quote, to the prompt, the poems . . .it all reaches my heart, catching me before I can pick anything unneeded up, propelling me to Him. πŸ™‚ God bless you as you travel by blog around the world for Him.

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Your support and encouragement Deb is deeply appreciated! It has been great here in blogland because of wonderful people like you! All praises to Him! πŸ™‚

  10. Rea, I love your acrostic poem! I say we hit the road with just a little knapsack filled with love, mercy, and grace, and leave the heavy baggage behind. Besides, when you add on the extra checked baggage fees it’s really not worth it. πŸ™‚ Peace, Linda

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Love, mercy, and grace — fantastic! It’ll be a wonderful and light journey, Linda! That extra fee could be another baggage so let’s say no! πŸ™‚

    I love this take and I agree it is time for everyone to put down there baggage and travel unencumbered!

  12. I can’t agree more with this.. Yeah, heavy baggage is what most of us are always carrying even when we are traveling to relax.. *thumbs up*, perfectly written for the theme.. πŸ™‚

    A very timely and profound poem…spot on. πŸ™‚

    Indeed. Travel with a light heart. I love it.

  20. booguloo Says:

    It’s an effort to even realize at times how bags I can carry at once. Thanks for letting me set down some to rest my back!

    what a great idea… I like the idea of travel-baggage to the “baggage” everyone of us has to carry…
