A Blue Balloon.

My pet pussy-cat died yesterday…I liked her…pets form a confederacy of mute adoration with their owners that is singular and different to our human relationships..hard to explain…I write this little testament to her passing..forgive me this simple indulgence.

A Balloon.

A bright blue balloon
Am I,
As blue as blue as an azure sky.
Catched for a moment
By an Hibiscus flower.
Wind buffeted,
Held for an hour
Of fragile kind-ship,
We were.
Now..
The delicate thread broke free..
Now, can you see me anymore
As I drift away
Shape and colour
Lost against a vast array
Of blue as blue as an azure sky.
My bright blue balloon
And I..
She is gone…
Goodbye my sweet..goodbye..
