The Airport…

Looking around seeing the people…the journeys that have began here and ended here…

All around me people of all types sit and wait for the large tin can to arrive…

Sipping their coffee, chomping on their bagel or sleeping in the chairs….we all wait

Imagine where they are all heading…what destination they are going to…

Vacations…business trips…family reunions…military coming home…

What could it be, where have they been, where will they go…

The speaker calls out, we all stand up, grabbing our bags to head to the tin can…

Like mice in a maze in a lab…seeking the quickest way to our seats…

Walking down the boarding gate, seeing the small door, waiting to enter behind many…

Walking into the tin can, cramped by the over head baggage bins…

Looking at the small seats, hoping to be by the window or aisle…

Throwing our bags quickly into the overhead storage…sitting down…

Adjusting in our seats, squirming around to find a comfortable spot…storing our coats…

The hum of the engines vibrates the cabin, the tin can hums in synch…

We begin to taxi, to roll on our way, to line up to head out…

The engines hum louder, the plane vibrates more, the people sit up straight…

We roar down the runway, the plane shimmies and gallops…

The front head up to the sky followed by the back and we are off…

We float on the air, piercing through to reach our height…the plane vibrates in fight…

We soar off to our destinations, our journeys our purpose…

The seatbelt light goes off, we recline our seats…

Some are on laptops, some are sleeping and others are reading…

The journey has began, the flight is on its way…we are heading to our goal…
