Questions in the air

What is it to float
over a mountain range of white clouds
with wings open as wide as the sky’s

What is it to enter
a realm where the sky is the earth
and your shade is the warmth of the shining sun

What is it to hear silence
cutting through the rumble of the engines
journeying further in, while winds make way

what is it to see outside
our innermost conceptions of heaven

what is it to experience
a reality more peaceful than the dream

what is it to rise above
everything
leave behind
everything
everyone
you ever did know
and love
and worry about

What is it to see and be consoled
that there is a world
where peace and accomplishment culminate
and that we might someday be blessed to sleep forever
deep inside a white, distant cloud, resting, smiling.
