Sketches in Flight


Abe V Rotor

Return Flight from Roxas City to Manila, August 12, 2011

I speak not, I sleep not,
and must be quiet;
I'm afraid, I must be brave,
calm and patient.

I fly fast but time isn't,
my baby's comfort
fills my soul and heart
to reach the port,

I'm blessed with love
by a common bond,
thankful to my Creator
as I look beyond.

Above I imagine Him
guiding our destiny,
and earthbound,
man's technology. ~

I wrote this verse, seated beside a mother a baby on board PAL from Roxas City to Manila, August 6, 2012
