Poetic Thursday: At The Airport

Thursday means poetry here on These Days. Each week, we join our friend, Pam, and her kitties Teddy and Angel Sammy, at Two Spoiled Cats for Poetic Thursday.

This is our photo inspiration for today’s poem:

And here’s my poem:

At The Airport

I was people-watching as I awaited my flight,
when I encountered this cute, comical sight.

A baby in a bin going for a ride,
while mom takes a minute to get her shoe tied.

I couldn’t help it: I had to smile.
Does baby earn “frequent conveyor belt miles”?

Yes, it’s a bit corny, but I wrote it at 3:00 a.m. when I couldn’t sleep, so…..

  1. HA! Cute poem – ESPECIALLY if you wrote it at 3AM (which was when I was just getting up for the day!!). It’s a cute photo that brings many things to mind and I just knew it would be a fun one for Poetry Challenge!! GOOD MORNING….


  2. You’re pretty creative when you can’t sleep – much more than when I’m wide awake:) Loved the poem – picture so cute. You captured the cuteness factor!

  3. I don’t think it’s corny at all – I like it! And you’re not the only one who writes at 3 am when sleep eludes us.

  4. it looks like he’s made this journey before !
