A Wednesday in Florida

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! :)
Enjoy!

Florida Bound

Written and illustrated by:: Caroline Williams

k

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.

h

Coffee stains on a sheet of green and blue,

The yellow and silver wing seen from my airplane view.

a

Perfect squares of fields and grass, all lined up very straight,

Florida bound, Miami bound, with destiny I have a date.

h

Complementary tea and cookies, “Yes please I want four,

Ive already eaten six before but HEY! Who’s keeping score?

a

Boats like little cookie crumbs, rivers like giant snakes,

It should look like this right?! I’m 30,000 feet up for goodness sakes.

h

We land, no crashes, in the terminal we can be found,

Checking bags, driving off, to Florida we are bound!
