Slice of Life March Challenge. No. 1.

that would be February 28th–
my alarm ended my slumber
while night still covered my city
which is located north of the 45th
I tumbled from my bed–
my bags almost ready–
mentally checking my list
to the last item — passport!
The day was long–
three flights long–
from northwest
to southwest
over the Gulf
landing in MIA–
that was crossing USA
Final boarding dance
and we were off
to our
Southern Hemisphere
Four hours later–
while it’s still February 28th–
we arrived Guayaquil.

This morning–
that would be March 1st–
I awoke
south of the Equator.

Deicing for takeoff.

Daybreak over Oregon.

The Gulf under my wings.
