Air Travel

Written for:  Poetic Asides April 2017 Challenge – Day 25
Write a love and/or anti-love poem.

Security and weather worries,
oh no, not a computer glitch.
Can’t they turn a switch or knob
to get us on our way?
All fights are cancelled.
Say it ain’t so.
No where to go.
Hotel rooms
are filled
time I’ll
take a train,
and stay on ground–
feels sounder than air.
Dare to look out window,
at landscapes more solid than
clouds floating by. Might book sleeper,
cheaper than plane fare. Hope tracks don’t freeze.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
