Dreams Afloat

My yellow balloon floated up in the sky

How long would it last no one would know

I held it tightly in my hand

But I somehow let it go

There were hundreds of others I saw as I stare

Confetti of colors filled up the air

We children reaching with our eyes in despair

Began to shed our tears with fear

But as we fixed our gaze above

Smiles chased our sorrow with awe

The sky was like none other seen

As all our dreams we saw

create an array our one balloon

could not a crowd ever draw

So if you open up your hand

And your dream needs to be free

Don’t try to hold it, let it go

So its beauty all can see


prompt: Write a children’s poem. (not sure if this is for children, but it’s about children and maybe all of us)


About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. Recently I have begun writing a couple of blogs. One poetry and one on hope. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused. Soon to be added is another blog...writings on hope from a biblical perspective. Now it can be seen at purplepandasandotherphenomena.blogspot.com. please feel free to visit.
