Weary traveler,
Trans-Atlantic flight.
Leaving New York,
Away from the light.

Over the ocean,
All is quiet.
Searching, Looking,
Into blue midnight.

Feeling worse than I look,
Looking worse than I should.
Longing, anticipating,
I would sleep if I could.

Weary traveler,
Trans-Atlantic flight.
Imagining, Expecting,
Up all night.

– Gary D. Myers, 2006
Inspired by flights to Paris, Tel-Aviv and Moscow
