Plane skies

The hush of dawn at the airport.

A wooden floor of shimmering gold.

Plane

Dreams can come true too

If you fly off into the sunrise.

Into dawn

(Pictures taken with my mobile phone on the way to Paris.

My daughter directed and took the second photo.)

THANK YOU for all your comments.

  9. Pingback: Ta hendene til din kjære – se på dem og hold dem hardt Disse hendene skal du følge, leie og lede. Du skal få føle på varmen fra dem og kjenne en inderlig glede. De skal stryke deg og de skal holde rundt deg – de er ikke skapt for å såre i vred

  28. I know airports don’t sleep, but I like it when it’s just waking up at dawn, when there are few people and the stores are just opening up. It’s a nice feeling to be in.
