turbulence and transcendence (advent in the air)

child screams bloody murder
hurtling at 37,000 feet
why don't we all?

child feels something real
we wonderers numb away
why don't we recall?

child only knows now
not past or beyond
why are we nowhere?

child reveals something real
we wanderers can't perceive
why are we now/here? 

(2 December 2014, somewhere in the air between PDX and LAX)
