I was high in the sky,floating through the air in my red balloon.
I could see the horizon, like a promise of the future.
I could see the ground below, reminding me of all that I had left behind
when I began my ascent.
I was alone in my basket, the sounds of the hot air whooshing and then silence.
Alone, but not lonely.
Filled with hope~ and excitement.
I take a deep breath and throw my arms wide,
I am finally free to embark on a great adventure.
I will go wherever the wind takes me.
