Flying Over Christmas Morning

Roads branch
into lanes
bearing fruit
of tiny farms,
a patchwork quilt.
Ten thousand feet.

blow smoke
over the hills,
in ravines.
Twenty thousand feet.

A thin band
of yellow and red,
the horizon–
blue above, gray below.
Thirty thousand feet.

Angelic smoke
now covers all,
an untaut blanket
rippled with waves
frozen in time.
Forty thousand feet.

The white carpet
His entrance,
too bright
in my window.
And holding.
