Balloon Man

for uncle Steve


Kindness and laughter

That is the 

White balloon man. 

Always there 

(But not quite all “there”.)

Filled with warmest air

Like a wispy cloud

In blue skies;

Sunray hair

And softest smile

And seafoam eyes.

Ribboned to a hand 

Just for a little while

Then off and up

To spread his joy.
