Airport Blues

20130929-093403.jpg

The joy in the captain’s voice
Declaring a tail-wind that will see us reach our destination an hour sooner.
The envy I feel towards my fellow passengers
Ready to scurry through the airport and head home – or to new adventures.
While I’m doomed to lose an hour of cat napping.
Doomed to spend it wandering around aimlessly in an empty airport.
