Today’s prompt came from https://dversepoets.com/2017/03/27/quadrille-29/ It was to write a poem of exactly 44 words, including the word “balloon.” Like last time, this one was fun to write, and I hope you enjoy it, too.
It goes to heaven when you let it go —
So said my mom when I would lose balloons.
I’d cry, but soon accept and be
On my way to something new.
Now is the same: I cling too tightly,
Choosing familiarity over true liberty.
