Red Balloon, Carrying a Tune

 Sojourning
west I begin my quest
searching for a sanctuary of rest
songs beating within my breast
brightly colored balloons carry me
beyond tall peaks of evergreen trees
catching your scent in spring's breeze
bursting with joy
a time of renewal
love

  22. Love this! Great job with the form poem. I think it just floated clear off the screen. I have written 2 poems about red balloons - they are so ~ poetic ~ and seem to convey a million nuances in their color, shape, bob and drift.

    Such a sweet and hopeful poem and then the shape that you made of a red balloon "soaring free!" Very uplifting (no pun intended.) :)
