Moment of Travel

I am buckled tightly into a small seat
Bleary eyed and stomach sore
Waiting, wanting to arrive

Watching clouds drift past easily
Novel lying discarded by my side
(I lost my page when I fell asleep)

Suddenly blurting over the dozing plane
Announcements in another language
That I almost understand

People move off quietly
Reverential,
Respectful of the morning hush

I clutch my passport, my very first
Peering past the queue
The new place is waiting, undiscovered

Moment of Travel
