Euphoria


A lie that lives
Emphemerally
A rapid descension
Down a tube
Your feet back down
On the hot baked ground
The autobiography
Of an air balloon

    This is a glorious ride, Leonard. Succinct and clear, the reader can really feel the euphoria you describe. Top of my wish list has always been a ride in a hot air balloon. Your poem has inspired me to do something about it. Excellent write. love Allie xxxx (Report) Reply
