Of God, the balloon pilot


In the clear blue sky
high above
a single gondola drifts by
no visible balloon
but balast
falling from the sky
as it rising
passes from sight.
The children run
to the balast
expecting candy
but finding sand
and small notes
with directions
and guidance
in an easy to read script
but vague
hard to understand
they run to the next spot
the next balast
seeking
desiring
but again finding only sand
and vague messages.
From the gondola drifting by
with no balloons
only messages.
