>One rainy evening napowrimo #26

>Under a full moon

smell the exhaust of planes

waiting on the tarmac

rain has just fallen glistening drops left behind

everyone waiting in anticipation

a plane takes off

one lands and hits the tarmac-hard

its engine begins to coil

someone is arriving home

or visiting a new place

thinking of starting my new life

it has all become clear

memories fade away

in my mind and my feelings

I fly …
