~ a brilliant flight! ~

In the sunshine and laughter I rose my head high
proudly smiling and reaching up to the sky
But anchored to the grate of a vendor’s van
I’m finally transferred to a sweaty greedy hand
“I want to hold it!! No! I will hold it I will !!!”

I held my breath waiting patiently until
with a screech of annoyance that hand lets me fly
free as a bird up into the sky
I rise and rise never to return
the wind sends me off without a concern

All the rest of the day I fly where I will
over city and bay field and hill
til suddenly my play is rudely cut short
I’m no longer going up like I thought I ought !

The cool evening breeze brings me gently down
I am for a park in the centre of town
and there in a tree my ribbon is snagged
and slowly I rest my life has now sagged
and as I deflate I know I shan’t fly again
but I am so grateful that there wasn’t any rain!

Artist's Description

The awesome Mr Mark German Saw This and as per usual I heard words!

Life is like that, breaking free of that sweaty childhood to fly and explore fanned on by winds to observe the world from our own perspective and then to slowly deflate and find our resting place!

Enjoy!
