So how about a little poetry jam?
Here's a basic 5-7-5 Haiku-- got one to share? Come on, you're
on the forum so you're thinking about it anyway....
share your memories, jokes or words of wisdom in poetry!

Anything posted could end up on a door...so...please say
if you want to be anonymous. And with Hellbouy in mind
(I don't know why), limericks are cool too :shock: .


A jam cruise newbie
awaiting the amazing
magic on the boat


Can't wait to meet you-
Luna

Location: just this side of "over there"
on a magic sea
friends dance all their cares away
music lights our souls

starlight shines on down
a party rolls on thru the night
madness fills us all

Wow I'm so sorry, no pressure intended!!

Awesome stuff!!! Keep it comin'! You guys are so inspirational as we look forward to our first JC, first cruise, and our honeymoon (after being married almost five years and having 2 kids-- out first trip without the kids!!) We are soooooo excited, your words are helping ground me so I don't just float off in a bubble of anticipation!

Great idea! Be warned though. Once you start Haiku-ing, it is hard to stop. We made a book of Jazzfest haikus in prep for that one year. I found myself at stoplights counting syllables on my hands :-)

Eagerly waiting!
Jamcruise vibes and dancing feet
All packed and ready.


Not really packed nor ready, but still really excited!!

Thanks, Sharon...you taught me a new word today! :)


Across seas azure
Floating melodic wonder
Funktabulous heat!


BluzBill...haiku master!

Luna: The lurker to poster ratio here is maybe 20 to 1. But I think you offered some encouragement -- been a while since I saw a haiku-off. ;)

Your sentiments are shared by many. You'll need more grounding over and over again as you encounter the elevators, pool deck, the theatre and every time you enter a new room it will bring your eyes out of your sockets and your jaw will bounce on the ground a few times...but you'll need that to drink up, so the moment is fleeting. Fortunately, it recurs more times than you will be able to count.

I'd say floating is the best way to roll onto the pool deck...it makes the ship lighter and you won't even feel your feet.

You may almost have an idea of what you're in for, but there's nothing you can do to prepare for that first moment of WHAT THE...HOLY MOLY THIS SHIP IS GINORMOUS!!!! I suggest your hubby or friends have a camera handy to get a good pic of your face (video works well) when you stroll onto the pool deck for the first time. Best way is from the top jogging track, that way you can soak it all in and appreciate the vastness of it all.

Then there's a whole new dimension at night time as the rainbow lights come on and the party kicks in all over again...and again...and again.
