Written on a plane…

Thirty Thousand

Another

Flight

And the chance

To let

My thoughts

Wander

At thirty thousand feet

Above my life.

Another

Flight

Towards home

And my daughter.

Thirty thousand

Feet

And too many miles

Separate

Me

From my daughter

And the greatest

Gift

In my life.

****

(untitled)

Her petite

Body

Is down

There,

Somewhere,

Beneath me.

As I fly

Back

To my

Empty bed,

She goes

On

With her life

And her day.

****

(untitled)

Sitting

In the middle

Seat

Of an

Oversold flight

Home.

Thinking

And thinking

Of the flight

In a few

Days

That

Takes me

To

The other side

Of the globe

And once again

Away

From my daughter

But closer

To my love.

The poignant

Struggle

Between

These halves

Of my mind

And my heart

Leaves me

Feeling

Dizzy

At times

And often

Distracted

By different

Wantings.

****

(untitled)

How

Should I

Say this?

How

Should I

Explain this

To my self?

How do I

Find my

Thoughts

And

Hold them

Down

Long enough

To understand

Them

Finally?

Where

Are

The

Words?
