Time is of the essence.
Running is bad for our knees and driving
bad for the planet but faster 
and faster we have to go.

Once on the same jet plane
we'll converse above the clouds and laughing
skydive together in contact for more 
than a glancing second.

To speak the truth, break the sound barrier,
see eye to eye at the speed of light,
contemplative hearts over and angain
read all they ever wrote, oh so slowly.

IMO,a very admirable idea well caught. The second verse is a bit 'terrifying'. When I see a jet fly over I always breathe a prayer, 'Be safe.' Every time!
