Ballons in the Sky

Yesterday morning, against the backdrop of a gray overcast sky, a bunch of balloons drifted into my line of vision. Just ordinary, everyday balloons in bright primary colors all tied together with string. The balloons might have slipped unknowingly from the hand of a young one who realized too late or perhaps they were intentionally set free to drift as they pleased.

I whispered a few wishes from my heart, then felt the wind take them from my lips, swirling them with the balloons before carrying both over the hillside.
