If you had any more hot air in you we could tie a basket to your feet and fly you over the valley.
We rise on a breath of flame
Around us, many more are doing the same
At the wind’s beck and call
Only it shall decide when and where we fall
Slower than a speeding jet
Yet here air and flame be met
No hurry, no rush, no haste we need
Of gravity’s pull we take no heed
Higher and higher do we ascend
Until we can see the Earth’s true bend
Below lie the vile, and the ugly too
But all I care about is the beautiful view
Up here there is no hustle to flee
I can simply breathe in, out, and be me
For if this skyward journey could eternity last
And all I did was travel this land so vast
Why I do believe I would happiness find
One that I would love to share with all in kind
But the apex risen we have already met
And now comes the time for this voyage to set
Slowly, softly, we are earthward bound
I only hope that I’ll hold onto this peace I’ve found.
Thank you for listening.
