Seducing with their siren song
Those who with skyward gaze
Watch with childish fascination
The dance unveiled above

Bright globes of color
Greet the sunlit day
Sharing a quiet moment
Basking in the beauty
Of a summer sky

Skipping through the gentle air
Rejoicing in the freedom
Of tethers undone
Aspiring to heavenly pursuits
Happiness is a balloon

About oldmainer

I am retired and live in southern Maine with my wife and two dogs. I started Oldmainer as an outlet for my occasional opinions and random observations, with some poetry thrown in. I welcome anyone that wants to kick back and join me here on the porch, exploring all the gifts we have been given and the memories collected. Thanks for stopping by.
