A warm, sunny breeze soothes my face,
as my tiring body pauses in this tropical place.
Soon, it’s back on the plane I climb,
looking ahead to my next layover time.
Many more hours pass, on this extended night,
on my long Trans-Pacific, commercial flight,
Finally, I arrive in a world that is freezing cold,
where memories of winter begin to take hold.
Arriving in my homeland, a former way of life,
to a different culture, I introduce my foreign wife.
America the big, the home of the diverse,
where it’s time to re-engage memory reverse.
