The joys of flying

A passenger jet

 with no room to spare,

I sit in a rare thing, a space

 with room for my knees,

My bum fits the seat 

with a just a little squeeze,

I was worried before, because I knew

the plane seats are tiny, 

more space in a zoo,

I had fingers and toes crossed, 

the seat belt would fit,

It did thank my guardian angel, I would have

felt like a twit,

Luckily the flight is only short,

A long haul in this,

 wouldn’t be sport,

My arm is wedged

 against the curve in the wall,

Understand how sardines feel,

 not having a ball,

A means to end but 

an uncomfortable lack,

Of reasonable comfort,

 give the designer the sack!

I am sat in a plane a few miles in the air,

We are descending,

 oh YES

 nearly there!

        Mine takes various directions I am in the midst of studying the editing if poetry and that is changing my voice. I also beling to a great facebook poetry group and am learning how to write the classical forms there which is very testing writing to that strict meter.

        That sounds very interesting indeed, it’s always good to go in various directions, that way I feel a writer can truly embrace versatility in his/her craft. To be honest, writing to me is a therapy, a form of escapism sometimes, where by creating a fantasy world of my own I can escape the brutality of reality.

        Yes one can envision a different world…or send a message…resonate with others, find new meanings its amazing to write.
