Aeroplanes in our Mind

An inscrutable buzz envelopes the mist
as planes descend and leave this city
It's almost the last week of December
People talk in loud shrilly voices
Another new year approaching
Another reason to be happy

I savor the warmth of the sun on my scruff
And I think about those winters
When we stood in huddles
warming up the air with our banter
Forgetting, it's almost the end of another year

But that was then, now
maybe you too are tuned into the buzz 
of planes against a misty sky
Listening to loud shrilly voices
of hope taking flight
Maybe this new year could
just be the reason to be happy

Who knows.
