More snippets from my travels in Ireland

Yesterday was anxious, emotional, angsty
Today all is calm, all is peaceful
there is nothing to do but be,
nothing to anticipate,
nowhere to go but this very moment ~
rushing headlong into a great adventure
Through the airplane window
sensuous crescent moon:
the journey begins
Smoky, damp air
a spectrum of greys and greens.
Trudging through misty streets
both foreign and familiar ~
it feels good just to breathe
Raindrops falling gently
against the windowpane
sleep will come easily tonight
