Brilliant blue and whispery white
Continuing on forever.
Further than my eye can see,
Further than I shall ever be.
Nothing but brilliant blue
And whispery white.

And then.
The plane descends
Through the sea of white
Into the darker depths
Of the world below.

From brilliant to blustery
White to gray
To earth we go to stay.

The author's comments:
On a flight home from Washington DC, I could not tear my eyes away from the window. The descent was so inspirational to me. In the blink of an eye, the view out the window went from brilliant, sunny perfection to darkness and dreary desolation.
