"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." ~Ferris Bueller


round latex sphere
vanilla scented
rising in time
lungs expand
keep expanding
don't stop expanding
exhale and rise
squidlike
unfurl silk
over the world
a snapping flag
water rippling gauze
over the world
wrap and encompass
look down
the world at your feet

soaring

My friends had a giant balloon tied to a fishing pole that they sent into the sky. It went so high up! This poem is what I would feel like if I were that high up in the sky.
