The lovely Helene of Willow Poetry has challenged us with “What do you See?”. You may write a poem, haiku, tanka or short story that represents what you see or feel within you. More info can be found in the link below.
Tethered to a hollow tree, is the only means of escape; above the clouds, above the sea, my visions, to take shape. I’ll prepare some food and pack my gear, I mustn’t take too much; travel light, as I leave here, from home, the things that touch.
Take my time getting ready, I can’t rush to make it through; I must remember, slow and steady, yes, that’s what I must do! Check the windows one more time, make sure the lights are off; got my map, but what a crime, should it happen, I get lost.
Perhaps it’s what I’d like to do, disappear among the clouds; just my balloon, decked out in blue, far away from noise and crowds. A flight of imagination, to breathe in the air, up here, alone; then finally, because I know it’s there, return to my tree home.
