Freed from the crushing crowd below, the white balloon, in silent flow drifts gently, born in spiral flight , ribbon trailing, gaining height, smoothly slipping through the sky, ‘til lost ...impossible to see, and while it slides through time and space, below, remains the human race, sadly unaware, of this sphere of rising air....

The thank is Yours, Sue! Although I do not understand all word-for-word, I understand the meaning of Your beautiful poems and when I read them, I like the consonance of words...

I like poems and philosophy very much, so go on with that, it is very very beautiful!

My very best wishes to You from Wolf ;°)

Thanks, Tony, I nearly missed you there, I don't know how i did that! I have to find an extra dimension somewhere to make up for my shortfallings in other areas, but I'm so glad you liked the result!

very kind regards to you, Tony, sue

Very best wishes to you, sue

Thanks, zoe, if I don't watch it, I'll be doing poems on here and finding a picture to go with it, instead of the other way around, won't I? :)

I'm so glad you liked the two together, it's what makes this all so worth while, to get such positive feed back, thanks so much!

very best wishes to you, Zoe, sue
