Set to “airplane mode”



Set to airplane mode.

Now tuned out to all ground communications,

I smile with an inner sigh,

Or relief as my small retreat from calls begins.


Tuning out can be nice,

For a while, but I wonder:

Who is trying to call me right now,

Perhaps it’s important,

Or am I being forgotten already.


Maybe I have set my life to airplane mode, tuning out God.
