Fly Emirates.. mental journal above the earth


Boeing 747, codename: EK -333
Vacation leave is over
Time to be transported back........
sealed inside an iron bird-like
a fuselage capsule for 8 hours A to A standard time


iron wings propelled by just-drilled jumbo engines
to face off its immortal foes - the air pockets
giant thunders with its tail waiting somewhere
at Thailand-Myanmar border


cockpit is my command......
ladies and gentlemen,
fasten your seatbelt.
ready for take-off...this is captain hummingbird
thanks for flying with emirates


as we ascend..... my mind begins journaling


wish to seat at cockpit
but it's alarming yet anti-hijacking policy
wish to see the islets at window side
but I'm here near the aisle
wish to sip european white wine
but not-yet on go-green sign
wish to call my wife my son to bid adieu
but cut-off communication lines


wish to know why and why
while boarding on plane of its kind
I keep on thinking how life should be
Did I spend it worthwhile?


oh no! I ain't be blown-up in the sky

poet Hilaire Belloc

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
