Another Airport Poem

Ana Maria Caballero

About the opposite windmilling of willing hands
powered by the onshore breeze
that blows,

on separate lands.

Ana Maria Caballero worked in finance, journalism, wine importation, and even on an international anti-drug campaign for the Colombian government before recently becoming a mom. Now she focuses her attention on writing poetry and book thoughts. Some of her work is available at
