WE HAVE LIFTOFF! A MAG TALE

This MAGPIE prompt is found HERE
and shared by all who wish to 
write a few lines, and "Sign in, please"...


UP, UP...and AWAY-AYYY

Lift us up you
beautiful balloons, to
asteroids, planets, moons
to happy place
in space.

Up, up, and awayyy

baby, maybe
to stayyy?

In our balloon-mobile

together we'd steal
far from the "mirth"
of earth, 
laughing instead
with the stars.

Silently, we sped

on our journey
past planets and rings,
black holes and things.

Days and months

turned into ageless years.
Of never finding way back

became our primary fears

He: Already you "Pop" yearn to return?

She: How do we  "Pop" go back?
Simply "Pop" one balloon,
then "Pop" another...see, we're 
passing Jupiter "Pop" and Mars.

Did "Pop" you enjoy the ride?

Kiss, kiss, kiss--that means "yes"!
Before we land: POPOPOPOPOPOP...
Honey, straighten out your dress

As we lay there 

on the earth-hill, 
grass grew beneath...
we did declare
our love.
So sweet.

Never again did we meet!

    1. Well, Lisa, maybe they never met again is my guess...I changed last lines just a bit. Thank you so much. You helped me make it "nicer"...though nothing "nice" about it, right?

    1. Yup. Laurie...everything happens one-at-a-time, I guess. Days, hours, minutes, all contrived to keep us sane--if that were possible!!!--grin!

  7. first - i love that pic - when i saw it first i just stared at it for quite a while and thought how wonderful it would be to travel like this a bit - and even better to make that journey with someone you can laugh with and have fun on the way - a bit sad that everything was over after the landing though...you know - i'm all for happy endings...smiles

  8. Hi Steve,

    Up up and away in my beautiful balloon..I don't know why I have the urge to sing that song..we declared our love never again to meet..the ending had a twist but, you know life is like that at times.

    Peace & Light my friend..always try to stay light in spirit then you can fly on the strings of balloons.
