PLANESPOTTING FROM A GARDEN CHAIR

I feel 'with it' using my new plane-finder app,
useless on cloudy days, of course, but I can track
the noise at least and even estimate the heights,
better when the sky is clear blue, open highway;

Dublin to Amsterdam, Manchester to Dubai,
Charles de Gaulle to LAX, Heathrow-Seattle,
some streaming vapour, some silver-winged, Haggard-like,
people going to and coming from, heading home

to loved ones maybe, to no one, en route for work,
holidays, window-seaters looking down to earth:
Is that a guy lying on a garden lounger
playing with an iPad, looking up at our plane?
