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

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
