It rises in the blue sky
High above the market tents
Caught in a playful wind,
Grinning a toothless smile,
Flies away like a wish.
Transcending its purpose
A white plastic bag lives
The dream of a red balloon.

And I will fly a yellow paper kite in your sky ….
I will float a silken silver moon near your window. Thank you. Smile.
Smiles back. Sweet Emm.
Thank you. It was quite a sight! The pauses in motion were as astonishing as the many shifts of direction.
A sky dance
Yes! That’s it exactly. A beautiful solo number.
A person (or in this case, a thing) that can dance by itself is the envy of the universe! It is, after all, the most powerful thing in the universe
Hmmm. Interesting thought. Care to elaborate to enlighten this cloudy mind? May be tomorrow when I can focus.
Just playing 🙂
Had me going on a pirouette there. 🙂
Elégant et captivant.
Merci. Le vent s’est leve soudainement quand le marche fermait, et tout d’un coup j’ai vu ce petit sac qui flottait si haut, plus haut que les toits….Et il m’a fait penser au ballon rouge.
Comme moi, tu devrais dormir maintenant. 🙂 Bonne nuit.
Love it! Make me chuckle out loud and smile. Will keep my eye out for that special creature now…
Please do. It may take you places you never knew existed. Smiling.
Qu’est-ce que je peux ajouter à tous ces autres commentaires, mon cher, Em ? Vous êtes la Dame de Grande du mot !
Merci Paul. You are way too kind. But I appreciate your compliment.
splendid and beautiful. I love it
i long for the dream of a red balloon 🙂
Thank you Noel. Dream away my friend, pretend you are six years old and watch the world change. 🙂
Anytime my friend, coming here tells me what can be, not just what is!
There’s that damn red balloon again!-)
I went to the link – envirodiscovery – and bookmarked it. Then I noticed that it’s been idle since last October. Do you know any more about it?
It looks to me like it was a school project ergo built in semester time limit. Sorry.
Oh, well, I’ll just remove it from the bookmarks. That’s a constantly-evolving file anyway.
You write so magically… I like your style
Thank you very much. It’s very kind to say so.
beautifully written poem on life that flies. The poem evokes several things. Love it:)
Thank you so much.
With words like yours, who needs pictures?
Lovely feeling imagery.
Aww shucks sir! ( I can be eloquent in a multitude of ways!) Seriously, thank you for stopping by and commenting, I appreciate it.
No, thank you for making my day a little brighter.
