AzureBlue backdated: homeward bound

That flight from phx to sea had crying babies. Plural. Then from sea to Anchorage -- I slept. Now, homeward bound. 41 minute hop, already leveled off, not quite yet descending. I am very good at discerning up from down on airplanes now. I love flying.

How to have a good flight? Have a happy peaceful air mage on board.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
