My List ~~ a Challenge Poem, using a "Recipe for Poetry"

Got my list

Places to go, people and things to see
Let's see now, have to get it right:
 
Day 1, I fly to London
Day 2 through 5, I stay in London (see some kin, see some friends)
Day 6, I fly to Nice, France and stay at hotel
Day 7 through 9, I'll stay in Nice (beaches will be nice, see some friends)
Day 10, fly back to London, spend the night
Day 11, shuttle to Harwich, spend the night
Day 12, board a Holland America ship, head to Norway (see the Channel once more)
Day 13 through 17, at sea (see some wales and fjords)
Day 18, shuttle to London from Harwich,
 . . . . . .board United in afternoon,
 . . . . . .be home later in same afternoon.
 
Made my list,
that's eighteen days, got to keep them straight
People and things to see, places to go
Bon voyage

a senryu set for Tuesday Platform

Saving Tears 

Have no tears for me 
Save them for your rainy day 
Sun comes to me first 

Not to be cried for 
I don't remember a thing 
Age has got my mind 

If I made you cry 
Surely you did nothing wrong 
Yes?  Then I forgive 

Twitter me today 
Tweet you back no matter.  Love
you still, save those tears
