above Iowa
unexpected turbulence
jolt of energy

holding pattern --
banking over crop circles --
around and a round

  1. and around the round
    we go, held aloft by dreams
    of a soft landing

  2. After seeing what it was like on the ground, I can only imagine what it was like in the air. Glad you made it safely...and were inspired in the process! Have a Merry Christmas!

  3. Yikes! Can't even imagine what yesterday's flight was like. Glad you got here safely. I have done that holding pattern over the eastern plains many times, usually in rough weather. It's beautiful, even when it's bumpy!

  4. Love this line; "around and a round." Couldn't help but wonder if some of the turbulence over IA might be caused by hot air; I've felt blasts of it as the caucuses approach. I'll bet it's good to see the CO landscape again. I'm looking forward to more poems from the big sky.
