A flight beyond flying

A flight beyond flying

A Poem by S. Michael Long

what is seen,
the shimmer green

the country side
from where weve been

not often lost in skyscraped gloss
we see the same, from 10,000 feet again

no more no less
just patchworked mess

rising higher in the clouds
to hear the voices of the loud

up there high upon the sphere
the minds and voices so ever-clear

we drift along through sift and calm
to drop again

runway 27 my friend

Wow. It's like looking down in panoramic view, the landscape of memory. "Rising higher in the clouds, and hear the voices of the loud." Great line. Sometimes you look at things from every different angle hoping it will appear differently somehow, and it doesn't, it's just 'no more or less a pathworked mess'. This write speaks volumes, you did an excellent job on it.

This is a wonderful poem! You've described the scene so nicely, it makes me smile. The rhyming was great. And since a lot of us here have stopped doing that because it's hard, I must give you credit for that. I like how you ended it, solving the mystery of what this was about.

A different way to think of riding an airplane... with views... very discriptive. I like it.

Right...I'm still taking in the poem and haha I don't have a clue about what it's about xD. So really there is nothing that I can say but that it is indeed a nice poem, with a great rhyming scheme and is good in it's own queer way:) keep writing!

A very good poem. I think there's a certain level of confusion in this poem, which I like, because it makes you think about what you're reading. Excellent job!

Nice. I really like the angle of the imagery as well. The memories with reality. Great direction.. Original.. I like it.

don't know what this is even about, runway 27? i'm really behind on news events, it was interesting though in it's own weird way. (i am only using the word weird, that doesn't mean i actually think it's weird, didn't know what other word to use)
