The Night of the Balloons

October 9, 2010
By , Plainsboro, NJ
The balloons slowly drifted away,
Into the indigo blue sky,
Covered with many bright stars.

They were flying higher and higher.
As the cool breeze swirled around them,
The balloons also danced blissfully.

When I lifted my head up once more,
They have already escaped,
Into the indigo blue night.

Bautufl, and so full of blue. It makes blue seem like a happy color, instead of the ubiquitous and popular interpretation as the hue of depression.

Thank you for writing this. 

<A little advice, your poem seems to change from the past to the present in the last verse, that's something to watch for.>

Thank you once more, keep on making the world a brighter place :)
