solo flight

Horror
of solo
travel
has got me
In its
vise
grip
~
Stuff
Overly stuffed
in baggage
Guts spill

~
chills
Play accordion
Up down up
spine

~
I
Fondly
Recall
You me us
them
thine

Buddha

IMG_0525

Calmly facing Buddha
has Calmed anxiety pangs
From across the room
I
Chant
Ohm ohm
again and again

return home

Its time
to fly
Home
Hit
the road
Again
~
Fists
Gripping
seventy-
Two hours
And a heart
Heavy
sad
In
Turns
~
With
Back
To old
Stomping
Grounds
Gently laying
old pet
Peeves, grief
To bed, carrying
Away Sifted airy
Light moments
I bid final
Farewells
~
Home
Is where
Heart
Is
Spring
In feet
I
Move
Forward
Wall to wall
Smile
On
Lips
~
Parting
Is not
Only
Sweet
sorrow
It can be
Joy
Also
~

emotional drain

Feeling
utterly
Drained
Wish I was
An airborne
Hummingbird
Tap tapping
In gain
~
Vainly
Trying
To conserve
Energy reserves
For long flight
Home
I am fighting
A losing
Battle
~
Time
Never felt
This heavy
As I heave
Myself heavily
Sighing
Am
Beat
~
Graceful
Retreat
Feels like
A treat as I
Search skies
for dawns
Soft rays
With ‘entreating’
Plea filled
Eyes
~

memories

Time
Pushes
Hours minutes
Up its ample
Sleeves
Until
Worn
Out
Body
Finally
Caves
In
Leaving
Behind
Etched
Tattoos
As
Portable
Portal
To
Portal
carried
Forward
Memories
