Steel Gull

Large iron bird, made of steel. 
Fuel filled, locked and sealed.

Upon iron wings we soar above the clouds, 
travel over land and sea for miles. 

A wonderful trip you gave to me,
home is where I must be. 

I sit back and wait. 

Enough gadgets in front of me,
I imagine I am the co-pilot. 
Telling us where we are, 
where we are going and how long to get there.

Traveled so far, in this gullet of metal.
Heading for home with a pocket full of foreign change
and a mind full of sweet memories. 

We sore together, upon iron wings, 
a trip I will remember forever. 


  1. been several years since i was last on a plane...i am def thankful when they land safe...smiles...nice bit of appreciation for your horse...

  2. Ah - agree with Brian - but this is very charming - excited when one first gets on the plane, then wants it to be done! k.

  3. Sweet! I love plane travel. (But please forgive me if I point out that you mean 'soar', not 'sore'. Hate to think of you hurting up there, lol.)

  4. Thanks all! Thank you Rosemary, yes a typo, corrected!

  5. Your gratitude expressed, not so subtle and sprinkled with an airy imagery.

    Pleasant travels.


  6. Welcome home! I really enjoyed this piece about the journey:)

  7. Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!
