If a person could float away
and spend a day
or maybe two
flying in the blue sky
like a balloon does,
would you do it?
What if birds attack
or you get smacked
by a plane?
A balloon’s life can be dangerous.
Still, soaring through the air
without a care in the world
sounds pretty nice.
You might not even think twice
about it and decide to go
along for the ride.
Maybe I would too,
but I’ve found that the ground
is also a great place to be.
Unlike trees,
we can move around
if need be
and see all that we want to see.
Balloons get stuck in trees.
