------------------------------------

So much rides


on the clutch


of a paltry string.


The balloon


engorged


red-flushed


thin-skinned,


anxious


to flee the


banalities


of a verdant earth,


to traverse


the azure and


pillowed sky,


 


ah yes--


to fly.

Ibbetson Press

Interesting pen
Reviewed by Edwin Larson 5/14/2007
Visual and expressive in so few words. A great write! Brings to mind the emotions and tone of the classic award-winning 1956 French short-film entitled "Le Ballon rouge" (The Red Balloon") I grew up in the sixties and I think every kid must have seen the film in school. It holds its own today.
Anyway, Thanks for the write. Enjoyed.
