Down the aisle of the metal tube,

She walked with her luscious long legged stride.

All eyes into her but she wasn’t saying a word,

What she offered instead was a palpable force

Fighting back a pleasant shiver swaying her lips.

Offering an alluring smile, confident and assuring.

Her charm swiftly vanished with a natural grace of a woman,

She sat with legs crossed and feeling her silk stockings clad

Her weary soul greedily soaked up the unsolicited attention.

There’s a bit of otherness inside herself, yet it’s the same.

She wonders if anyone could ever decipher the script on her face.

She waited for the last call that would signal descent.

Mesmerized by the night sky and the city lights

From thirty seven thousand feet without blinking, heart bleeding.

The end of the flight has come. For now, she’s out of the metal tube.

Did you know?

Research indicates that people fall in love with flight attendants at first sight more than any other professions. :) Source: randomfacts.com

Feel good movie to watch!

      I love the easy swagger to this piece--Frank is right, the flow is great!

      Cool poem, Cris. Rather than seeing a flight attending in a plane, I pictured an alien woman reaching Earth and disembarking from her craft.

      Your heart is in the sky, as mine sometimes is, but it is occasionally on the ground, too. It all depends on where those wings take us.

      "thunderbolt and lightning, very, very frightening me".

      "How I wish a valourous shining Knight would keep me company."

      Seems a cool one to include. Ha ha.

      Straight from the heart Rolly--the only way to do it and write it. However, it will not make any sense if it is not for people like you who appreciates word artistry.

      Thank you. So glad you dropped by.

      manatita44: Thank you. Easter was good and now looking forward to some real spring time. It's still cold in my part of the world. Yesterday, we had some rain and pellets at -2, "thunderbolt and lightning, very, very frightening me". Now, sing along with me, if you know the next line. :)

      Love from the (grey) sky~

      Wonderful imagery - this coming from someone who logs a lot of air miles. I've seen the looks on the faces of those who watch her passing...

      Cris, I always wait with anticipation your next hub especially if it is poetry which you do so well. You share the feelings of a flight attendant very well. Nice pics, and I can certainly understand while men fall in love with flight attendants at first sight.

      By the way , you need to watch for a new poets and writers group , "Creative Exiles" , some former hubbers including myself ,writers are creating and as far as I'm concerned you're in !

      An extremely beautiful poem. Like you, perhaps ..composed, poised, elegant, re-assuring, charming ... beautiful, sophisticated and in the sky. Hope your Easter was great and that Spring will be even better.

      Perhaps I'll fancy a flight attendant in your plane. A touch of romance there with the video. I use to sing that song a lot. -Manatita
