Flight

April 19, 2008
By Kara Wang, Saratoga, CA

A girl dashes across the street,
Face flushed ponytail swinging.
Stretching fingers strain to reach
A floating globe eluding her grasp.
Tears appear as it glides away


Alone.

A boy with apple cheeks passes
With a canopy of restless red.
His hands release, filling the sky
With a bouquet of ruby balloons.
Tears disappear as they smile


Together.
