The interior of a hot-air balloon preparing to go up, up and away!  🙂

For a moment,

they bob,

these dull black balloons,

tethered to the traffic lights

in stringtime contemplation,

hermetic thoughts

jostle and tangle,

in colourless mirror-image



to dream themselves red-hot

airships unleashed,

cerulean adventures

aloft a blue-moon day.

  8. Hi Madelaine. What a small world. You were also at the Fair! 🙂
    It was such great fun, wasn’t it?

  9. Striking colors of the hot air balloon photo! Wonderful poem!

  10. Lovely colors in the ballon. Cool shot!

  11. Beautiful poem and photo. Lovely contrast between the pedestrians “tethered to the traffic lights” and the freedom of colorful hot air-balloons. I love the photo of the balloon, it reminds of a time a large balloon landed outside our house – on some wasteland! That was quite unexpected and beautiful!!

  12. Now that is a cool perspective. We had our balloon festival this past weekend but due to weather they couldn’t launch! 😦

I'd love to know what you think........
