NPM 2019: Days 6 and 7

Somehow Saturday evaporated and Sunday appeared…it’s Spring Break, so my schedule is disrupted as I travel and enjoy some vacation time.  But I continue with the poem-a-day challenge…here are entries 6 and 7.

Day 6

Flight 297

They queue

single

file

into the heavy metal tube

soon

it will hurtle

through the sky

bird-like

but not.

Once inside

they vacillate

between

fear and boredom

seatbelts latched

tray tables too

eyes glazed

by movie after movie

restless to arrive

hours crawl

moving back in time.

As never-ending approaches

they

land.

Day 7

A Blue Kind of Day

The day dawned blue

with light that warms

your shoulders

and your heart

Azure

Indigo

Ultramarine

Royal

Navy

Turquoise

Aquamarine

Sapphire

Teal

and all the colors nature invented in between

Blue that melts worries

lets you breathe deeply in and out

and calms the soul.

It was a blue kind of day.

    As a nervous flyer, your first poem made me shiver. That hurtling tube. Ugh. The next one sent me to a better place 🙂 I was talking to someone (a photographer) the other day and he referred to the pre-dawn/early morning “Blue Hour.” Have you ever heard that? Enjoy your break! Four days and counting here!
