My seat back is in its upright and locked position.
My tray table has been stored.
All my electronics have been turned off.
I’m ready to land.
My flight took of a while ago…I don’t even remember when.
I was ready for the trip- the change of surroundings.
But due to unknown reasons, the plane has been circling the airport for weeks.
I can’t even see the ground- too many clouds.
I’m restless. I want to land now. I’m ready to have the wheels hit the ground.
Instead, I’m stuck in this holding pattern of circles.
Round and round I go. Seeing the same gray outside, hearing the same announcement:
We’ve been informed that
We cannot yet land.
Thank you for your patience
The anticipation is waning because part of me wonders if I’ll ever leave this holding pattern.
I’m not used to having my life go in circles.
Things always go so fast, change so often- I can’t usually keep up.
I liked the slower pace…
But I’m tired of sitting in this same spot.
I”m bored with myself here.
I’m getting dizzy from all the circles.
My heart needs a change. My legs are stiff from the cramped seating.
Let the sun shine so the plane can land. Release me from this circular pattern. Finish the work You started so I can start the next chapter of my life.
