North West Flight 605

By Annette Gagliardi

Blue seats in neat rows-
Narrow in between
The gauntlet of passage
slows the passenger stream.

Blue uniforms work
their way backward.
Coffee? Tea? Soda?
Making the impatient wait.

Seat belts on-
Window shades down,
heads nod in repose
as we sleep in our clothes.

Above the clouds
sunshine glows.
Thirty-two thousand feel high,
how very fast we fly!

Asiatic Lilies

Fly Away

by A.Gagliardi

I will fly away

from all this

doing, running, struggling

living our life.

I will fly away

from you

and your strong emotions

opinions, intensity, too.

I will fly

away for a time

because we make our life together

too sublime.

I will fly away

and come back again

because you are my beginning

and my end.

How often do you fly?

How often do you fly?
