We went to Florida a few months ago and I wrote this poem on the plane. I figure “life on Wednesday” is a great place and time to share it! :)

You haven’t lived until you feel like you can reach the stars,
Miniscule are the things that you once knew as houses and cars.
Coffee stains on a sheet of green and blue,
The yellow and silver wing seen from my airplane view.
Perfect squares of fields and grass, all lined up very straight,
Florida bound, Miami bound, with destiny I have a date.
Complementary tea and cookies, “Yes please I want four,
Ive already eaten six before but HEY! Who’s keeping score?
Boats like little cookie crumbs, rivers like giant snakes,
It should look like this right?! I’m 30,000 feet up for goodness sakes.
We land, no crashes, in the terminal we can be found,
Checking bags, driving off, to Florida we are bound!
