Fantasy in Flight

As the small breathless child
releases the air strained rubber
She squeals in spontaneous delight
as the balloon zigzags out of control

Falling lifelessly to the carpeted landscape,
she eagerly rushes to its side
Grabbing the balloon,
she brings it to her lips
     Blowing     Bigger
          Blowing     Bigger
               Blowing     Bigger
Only to once again release her prize!

Her mother watches #24
fly down the well lit hall
Her daughter racing to unite,
narrowly missing the corner wall

And mom wonders if she'll ever tire,
of her fantasy in flight
It's looking rather doubtful,
#25 is now in sight
