I wrote this and thought I'd share it with everyone! It's just a first draft...
Michelle

Cruise Anticipation

Four days and nights
on a large, fun ship.
It will be our first cruise.
I can't wait for this trip!
We've never been on a trip,
with just us two, together;
this one's sure to be one
we'll always remember.
Gentle waves and a balmy breeze;
A sunny sky and an ocean blue;
I want to forget Chicago's winter;
I need an exotic, palm trees view.
We'll walk onto the ship
to a small inner room,
put the luggage down
and prepare to consume.
A feast galore
three times a day;
my diet will briefly
go astray.
A week of someone
else waiting on me;
all I have to do is
have fun and just be.
We'll explore places
we've never seen before
and won't have to attend
to a single chore.
My camera will fill
with photos of fun
memory cards maxed out
when the cruise is all done.
Sail us away
to the first seaport
for a lovely day in
our first stop, Freeport
followed the next day
by charming Nassau
I'm sure the sites
will fill us with awe.
Then a whole day at sea
on the ship Sensation
enjoying a much needed,
stress-free elation.
It's been way too long
since our last vacation
We both need the rest
and relaxation.
I'll do some writing
while I watch my son
hang with other kids
and have lots of fun.
I want to enjoy
a sunset at sea
with calm blue water
surrounding me
and walk on beaches
so soft and white.
From the shore we'll see
the ship lit up at night.
This first cruise for us
will be a true joy
for this tired single mom
and her teenage boy.
I'm already planning one
that's four years out;
it'll be eight days long
with a Caribbean route.
