Exultation

Spread the love

Under the deepening skies, there blooms
willing soul, with a feeling that seemed to 
cling to heart. I remembered at once, that
blues could be let loose like a helium filled
balloon then smile towards sun cherishing
shades of orange, dijon and pure desire.

  5. I felt a bit of loneliness, of sadness, and then the wonderful release signified by the balloons–the letting go. Great metaphor. One of your best.

      Thank you so much, Victoria 😀 so glad you liked it ❤️

  6. Terrific metaphor, rocking the prompt=–put me in mind of Paul Klee’s THE RED BALLOON. Joyful abandon trumps those clinging parasitic blues every time; smile.

    It’s smart to let the blues go, Sanaa. They didn’t like you anyway. The higher they soar, the happier they’ll get. Thanks

  34. Jim says:

    Nice, Saana.
