Airport timewarp

Sitting in

Airport

Killing time

Until my flight

Departs

And I

Lift off the earth

To return

To my home,

To my daughter,

To my job,

To my life.

The time between

Arrival

At aiport

And departure

From airport

Always feels

Like a wrinkle

In time-

A place where time

Neither moves

Nor stops,

But ceases to exist.

A place where time is

Measured

In units

Of “On Time”,

“Delayed”,

“Ahead of schedule”.

No hours,

No minutes,

No days.

I’m still

“On Time”,

Even if

Time is now

Irrelevant.

    As a frequent traveler, this really hits home and captures the otherworldliness of it all. Very well done!
