Flight 141

arm doors and cross check,
the safety demo and video,
then we taxi bumpily
down towards the runway,

we straighten up,
with a quick thrust and
loud roaring of the engines
we hurtle down the runway,

beads of water run diagonally
down the window

very quickly we leave terra firma
and are propelled into the sky
we climb and climb
and are soon above the clouds

the bumps of the runway
have been replaced
by gentle turbulence

I look downwards
towards a distant landscape

but soon see only clouds

My journey has indeed begun.
