wonderful! Balloons... how much I love them, i got them on facebook profile pic, letting is easy when it comes balloons cos they are meant to fly, in contrast we are earth bound & sadly hearts do burst. Good to see your poems after long!
Excellent Linglang, letting go is indeed painful, but the metaphor still holds. When we do let go it is like a child's balloon soaring up to the sky in the light of the sun. That freedom for both the balloon and the balloon launcher is a liberating experience.
