From where I sit, the earth is vast and sparkle gleaming,
From where I sit, great rivers seem to be mere streamings,
From where I sit, the earth spreads on display and bare.
From where I sit, no sign that humans e’er were there,
From where I sit, the whirring jets confirm I’m here,
From where I sit, the aero-techies (gladly) rule the air.
And yet I sit within the hugeness of this steel,
And know that I, a speck of dust must be (surreal),
So here I sit, in awe of greatness of God’s plan,
Kept aloft (yet marred) by wondrous feats of man.
Love your poem and the photo is perfect for this assignment.. I love photos from the air, showing the vastness of this world we live in.
So do I, except I normally try to avoid including the wings or endows. This assignment played right into my hands. Thanks for commenting.
