A Balloon Let Go

For this weeks revisit, I return to a poem written in response to a poem written by Gina at Singledust in March, the details of which I do not recall, but likely it started in a comment in response to one of her poems last spring.  If I recall, this was well received both at my blog and at Poets’ Corner.  (Oh I found the source of my inspiration: https://alifelesslivedblog.wordpress.com/2017/03/28/dverse-quadrille-heart-string-balloon/)

A Balloon Let Go

The balloon our sorrows filled
like helium floating upward
we held earthbound too long.
I looked at you and with eyes
swimming into one another’s
heart. The wordless answer
spoke by opening its hand
giving the sorrows flight
until they burst like the sun
rising on our horizon
whose orange melts
across the darkness
allowing the deep blue
meaningfulness of day
to arrive
to stick our hands into
to find the star
to light the remaining days
like an umbrella of softness,
under, we hold one other close
when the rain falls as
little drops of inspiration
drawing us closer and closer
until we melt into one
flash of lightning
at last, released.
