Strings

To float
Looking for the strings
Invisible balloons
That will take me there

To float
Closing the eyes
Finding the bridges
That will take me there

To float
Giving myself in
Losing the inertia
That keeps me here

To float
I’m a balloon
Hold on to my string
Let’s fly away


Innocence by Angela King-Jones

Born in spring, my name means Spring. I love poetry in all its forms.

The word “poetry” derives from the Latin feminine noun poetria, meaning not “poetry” but “poetess”.

    yes I will hold on… very tightly. :) . I suppose we could float on the smoke, the chains of his notes, billowing like light clouds or starlings flocking

  • we could, we should…it’s easy to be transported whan we want to…keep on holding Chris, we’e re entering a new sphere

    you always find the perfect word…
    perfect poem.
    i like “loosing the inertia,” it makes me think of being in a big hot-air balloon, tied to the ground by inertia, and you reach down and loosen the ropes…
    also, i think the title “strings” is an excellent choice-the poem is floating, the title is strings :))))
