it is a poem about a balloon who never know his destiny

Flying Balloon

Up in the air,

Shiny scarlet looks tiny,

From the earth,

Never know the destiny,

Never know the way

It flies,flies and flies,

Out set freedom,

Like a message,

The solitude in floating clouds,

Frolicking went on and on,

Seems like a gaiety flower,

In the heaven,

Never know how come this far,

The endless journey,

Dreaming like heaven,

Lost balloon,

The only balloon in the air.

I love the last line especially. I can relate. what I take from it too though is that fact that you have chosen the balloon to be shiny red,scarlet. Therefore attractive, promiseful, bright.I might find it's way home afterall. Whether you meant to or not, this is a very a clever and yet small detail. Perfect :)

I've always wonder what happens with balloons in sky, and having this poem was a great alternative. It was very simple but very beautiful and I love it because that balloon could represent anything and anyone.

How sad...but very true. Could easily relate with people as well. Not knowing their destiny. Nice inner meaning.
