Carried  in Hot Air Balloons

Oh, dear friends,
Come travel with me
And see the wider world,
We will fly and tread upon sunlit clouds
On air currents paved with sunbeams,
Carried in hot air balloons.

We will exclaim over the tree tops,
And complain of the traffic
When caught in flights of migrating birds
Traveling to more clement climes,
Carried in hot air balloons.

Eating peaches, mangoes and plums,
We’ll plant unlikely orchards,
Spitting the seeds over the sides
Like unexpected compliments
Carried in hot air balloons.

We’ll float in glowing silence, spun by humming webs
Filled with songs sung in joy,
Thrumming lines played by passing time
Filling empty spaces we’d never felt before,
Carried in hot air balloons.

We will sleep on moon-washed murmurs
Covered with hearts light as warm wishes
Flowering in swaths of loving beauty
Flowing over soft-aired dreams,
Carried in hot air balloons.


Oh, dear friends,
Come travel with me
And see the wider world,
We will fly and tread upon sunlit clouds
On air currents paved with sunbeams,
Carried in hot air balloons.
