Prompt 15 Flying high

Drawing Conclusions
before the experience
was all I could do
Any place I ever went was within car range

You can hardly feel the bumps and bruises of travel in the air
and on planes no humidity happens
just turbulence
just pressure
just sound
and prayers
I pray more in the air than on roads

Scrunching up my nose
there is no air to smell up there

You meet the night’s sky in it
it was memorable
planning to go by myself
leaving my children for the first time
feeling full of adventure and falling in love with the space in between
