Post 1533. Sunday May 21
The Sunday Whirl
I'm laying on soft green grass on a hillside, bathing in the warmth of a smiling shining sun. I point and trace a line in the sky above me. White on blue. Bold and billowing, then flimsy and scattered. There’s another, and another. Three white lines running this way and that.
There are people up there. Hundreds of people. I wonder where they are going, where they've been. I wonder what they are doing. Watching movies perhaps. Some drinking, some eating, laughing; wide awake, excited by a trip of a lifetime. Some tired, weary. Deals done, business dealt with. Dozing, sleeping, dreaming of home.
‘Come fly with me’ I sing. Not very well. I write a message with my finger. ‘Hey, it’s me down here. Wave to me!’ I want my finger to leave a white trail of words, but it doesn’t. Oh well.
I'm burning. Where's my sun tan lotion?
Today's given words at The SundayWhirl are - flimsy, shine, trace, line, run, stilted, tire, three, trips, message, wonder and sing. I used all but one.
Very nice and dreamy. This sounds like my thought processes. ~grin~ Nicely done!ReplyDelete
Great minds think alike! Thanks Darla.Delete
Hi Keith - we're in that time of year when the clouds flit over or the trails from the planes ... but too long out and about and our poor English skin burns away ... well at last we need sun lotion ... cheers and enjoy your week ahead - HilaryReplyDelete
You are so right Hilary! Thanks so much Hilary.Delete
Flying is downright scary..if you start to think of the mechanics of tin in the sky it's way too scary.. maybe being on the ground looking up is far betterReplyDelete
I love flying - can't get enough of it! Cheers JaeDelete
What a great story from those words Keith. Always preferred a voyage by liner on the briny but that just shows my age.ReplyDelete
Flying for me!Delete
Flying scares me, i'd be up there in a panic. It is nice to dream of other places, though.ReplyDelete
You too? It's great up there! And it gets to those far away places several times a year. Try it!Delete
