Cruise Poem C33

It’ll be hard to get used to –
The world around me being still –
After this cruise will be through –
When I’ll be sitting, standing or lying still –
And the world around me will be, too

Notes to this poem…

The cruise ship was pretty much always moving when I was sitting or lying still on board, and I’ve got to say, I loved it! I just love being in motion and would have it during most of my life awake if I could!

These cruise poems were written on my first ever cruise between September 2nd and 9th, from Seward, Alaska to Vancouver, British Columbia. Most were written at night on my limited down time from family, in the dark of the Helideck at the front of the ship, often alone beneath the night skies of Alaska.
