NaPoWriMo #19


Free balloons,
the sign said, and
Only take one, please
but I took two balloons

painstakingly selected, a pink and a
yellow, and watched them
bob up on the ceiling
floating towards the
door as if they wanted to

so when we went outside
I let them go into the
gray sky, two splotches of paint
on a wet canvas.

sometimes I think helium balloons are meant to be freed... =)
