Tethered to the earth
I find freedom, in the fire
The skyward release
Flirtatious winds carry me
To places my legs cannot

I think that`s exactly the amazing thing about things that fly… we feel like we can reach the unreachable, isnt it?
Loved the post, thanks for sharing. I liked this prompt because it is kinda of funny to read other`s view about the same image you are seeing. Like you, you are the one in the balloon, another one I read wrote about it laid on the grass and I was a crazy old man who saw it from the far.
I know I love reading people’s interpretations! I love your crazy old man. That’s really awesome. Thank you so much for visiting my site =)
i liked the idea of the wind being flirtatious, carrying dreams to those unable to fly…
