Grounded

I.
Metal bird grounded
Regretful voice announces
Computer error

II.
Delays inspire
Idle pithy musings in-
to tarmac twaiku

III.
Attendant attempt
Appease antsy passengers
passing poor earphones

IV.
Gentle plum will prune
from waiting. Airline will pay
if missed connections

V.
Ran out of reading
Tired of tunes legs cramping
Gum long lost flavor

VI.
Passing sparrow mocks
Plight of grounded passengers
This cold winter mo(u)rn
