If Time Stopped...

February 12, 2012
Laughing and singing even though no one is around.
The happy sound splashes color on the dark woods.
The birds chirp in the trees above and the squirrels dart in and out around the trees.
The shadows of the trees dance around playfully on the ground.
Leaves start falling like confetti in the air.
The little red balloon floats higher and higher, getting entangled in the branches above.
All of a sudden it pops, shattering the still silence.
The squirrels and the birds rush back into hiding.
Time stops as the little deflated red balloon gently floats down and rests at the little girl’s feet.
She sighs deeply as time slowly starts again.
