Rain and Balloon

Rain-drops are laughing,      



Like blossoms                      

Of cherry trees,                    

Or snowflakes,


Onto the garden                   


I am alone                             

Floating on,


A little cooling                        

A warm summer                    



As if big                                 

Flying balloons                      

Of birthday party                    

Of friends 


All at once burst                     

From right above                    

My belly,



All those drinking                    


For toasts​.

Very soothing in these difficult days. I'm floating away in my own mind!
