Writing 201: Poetry – Journey

Assignment #2 has a word prompt of Journey to be written in the form of a Limerick using the device of Alliteration. So here is mine:

Germany is a journey to enjoy that I would choose.
Flying overnight to Europe offers time for a snooze.
Oh, I am so excited …
so much fun …
now that we’re both booked aboard a Viking River Cruise!


Here are some brief highlights of the 8-day cruise along the Rhine in Germany, which includes Basel (Switzerland),  Breisach (Black Forest), Strasbourg (France), Koblenz, Heidelberg & Rüdesheim, Cologne, Kinderdijk and Amsterdam (The Netherlands).

“Rhine Getaway” on Viking River Cruises – 45 sec


We will also be spending several days each visiting Amsterdam, Munich, Salzburg (Austria), Leipzig (wife’s grandmother birthplace), Berlin (nephew and family), as well as several other places. It will be a wonderful 3 weeks, with lots of opportunities for travel and photo blog posts. I welcome any recommendations and suggestions since we’re still finalizing our itinerary and activities.

I’m new at writing poetry. I decided to give it a try with the Writing 201: Poetry course over the last two weeks of February. Let me know what you think, and comments are appreciated.
