The familiar sleepwalk

Once again

Sealed in a plane

At 30,00 feet

Above the earth,

Leaving my family

As I travel

For work.

The familiar

Sleepwalk

Through the early morning

Airport obstacle course,

Filled with

The sleeping

And partially awake,

As we all

Lurched

To our gates

And waiting aircraft.

Each of us

Shuffling

Or running

To a place

Beyond

The terminal

And gates.

In just a few

More days

I’ll repeat

The entire process,

But with a late night

Arrival

At home

And a quiet

Entry

Back into

My sleeping

Family’s lives

And my

Warm and welcoming

Bed.
