Purple, not flowers, fake flowers

The Anchorage Welcome Center provides an opportunity to write postcards to family and friends in the lower 48. They have pens you can use. Fake purple flowers decorate the pens and help ensure that people will leave the pens.

Flight 97 to Anchorage Has Been Delayed

Haunted by your absence
I stand,
Shifting weight from foot to foot.
As backpack straps dig into my shoulders,
I gaze at people scurrying by,
On their journeys from here to there.
At times my eyes fix upon a stranger,
and as the face blurs before me,
for an instant,
you, who are I know not where,
are with me.

This is an old one written in the Sea-Tac Airport sometime in 2003

Haunted by your absence
I stand,
shifting weight from foot to foot.
As backpack straps dig into my shoulder,
I gaze at people scurrying by,
on their journeys from here to there.
At times my eyes fix upon a stranger,
and as her face blurs before me,
for an instant,
only for an instant,
you, who are I know not where,
are with me.
