One minute we're above them,
then we plunge into them.
They begin to surround us. First we have light. Then thick gray. No light, no blue, no brightness anywhere. Just thick gray all around us.
And then the land. Green. Buildings everywhere. And then the ocean.
I can see the runway now in the distance as the small plane tilts and shifts it's way across the bay.
We're getting lower and lower. So close to the water. And then we touch the ground.
