story of my flight in 8 haiku

image
I love to use the empty seat for my newspapers, and the tray table for my drinks, leaving a tiny bit of personal lounging space at my own seat – flight nirvana!

 

empty seat beside me
an unexpecsted pleasure
a “no chitchat flight”

scary turbulence
no matter how much I fly
hate loathe despise it

image

gripping the armrests
sending up prayer after prayer
imagining crash

image

grumpy skies bumpy
frightened, I wish it would stop
clenched hands aren’t helping

image

think positive thoughts
channeling turbulence fears
I write some haiku

gotta get a grip
today’s not my day to die
plane WILL land safely

wafting gently now
the skies are friendly again
I’m fine ’til next time

image

on the ground now
calm and confident I am
I love air travel!

My text to the Grill-Meister upon landing: “On the ground and not dead!”
