These poems are inspired by childhood memories :0)
The first is a much older memory than the second.
Airplane in the sky
Airplane, far above the ground;
I forgot where we are bound.
We are trapped inside of it;
And yet clouds we cannot hit.
Fly like that- I want to too!
In the sky outside so blue.
But I guess machines have beat
Humans to this dream-like feat.
What is that now down below?
A sea of blue, seeming aglow.
The ocean lights up from up high;
Always smiling at the sky.
I want to jump into its waves;
Explore the fish and deep-hid caves.
Soon we’ll see the land once more
Tiny man’s and nature’s decor.
Minuscule towns look so strange
There’s the fields and farmer’s range
Are we really all that small?
And if from here the plane will fall
How long will it take the world
To normal size again unfurl?
Crashing through the atmosphere
Our journey is not ending here
Clouds float underneath us still
Only two more hours till
I meet the land again with joy
And smile at the sky so coy
I’ll say, we have met before!
We’ll be friends forever more!
Grandparents await, not far
For this metal shooting star
To land amongst the towns and farms
And fly me right into their arms
Trip through the past
The train rumbles in the distance;
And you look out at the shore, to
Wonder if you’ve been here before.
Metropolis of my heart;
Memories can’t tell apart
Which is where and when was which;
The present for the past you’ll ditch.
Thinking of the better days;
Fall asleep while the ocean sways
Outside of your railway train.
