Forty Days by gazanson

[Bristol, UK]

Like a game of peek-a-boo
Airplane doors close then reopen
And a different world appears.

It's all quite magical really. This business of hopping in a plane, sitting back with closed eyes, then some time later hopping out again -- into a different world. We've now gotten used to the trick and fail to appreciate it. But look at how it delights a child especially -- the improbable act of taking off and staying aloft. Then arriving somewhere completely 'other'. A modern version surely of a magic carpet ride. I love it. And though I understand the physics of it, I can still marvel at the amazing, stupendous fact of it.
