Market Sight

In The Wind.JPG
It rises in the blue sky
High above the market tents
Caught in a playful wind,
Grinning a toothless smile,
It dances,
Floats
Climbs
Twirls
Bounces
Runs
Flies away like a wish.

Transcending its purpose
A white plastic bag lives
The dream of a red balloon.

    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?

      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. ๐Ÿ™‚ Bonne nuit.
