Cotton Candy of the Sky

Our metal tube lines up on a runway

Anxious engines wait for the call

Then roar to life when a deafening sound

Bringing us to a speed beyond reason, comprehension

Houses in grids tessellate to the horizon

We rise, sharply, to the blue sky

Clouds hide the ground

Fluffy and full, a blanket in all directions

The winged craft skips around

A child during recess

Reaching ever higher towards the Great Unknown

Sailing the sea of cotton candy
