I like to draw faces on balloons. Faces on balloons look weird but if you let the air out of them. They’re kind of cute. It’s true, You should try it. I don’t know. Maybe not.

Teacher writes a note and puts it in her blue balloon, and she shows us how it flies away. She says somebody somewhere far away will find it. I scribble something down in my messy childhood way of writing and let loose my bright red balloon. Seven years later I’m no longer living in my hometown in Texas but in Arizona, and times are tough. I see a bit of red caught on one of the cacti and find a little note nearby. I grin. On the paper is a little smiley face and the words “Hope the weather’s nice wherever you are.”

It was one of those bipolar days. I started off just fine, didn’t need coffee, and sometime during the carnival it hit me. Within a MINUTE I was in tears for no reason. He must be the one – he bought me a dozen balloons tied together just so that I could pop them.

Glitter cascaded from the balloons
forming the words
Find yourself amusing….if not fascinating
and…….Listen to the song of Life…

Tie your worries to a balloon and let them go. It doesn’t even have to be a real balloon. Let your worries sink away into the atmosphere. Everyone has balloons that they want to get rid of. But, only some of us can get rid of them.

Balloons go as high as they can until they pop. I think.So… what if we’re dying and our life is flashing before our eyes?
By Mr.Goulbourne on 04.27.2012
“don’t let go, hold onto it tightly and if it decides to fly away from you, chase after it until you can’t feel your knees any more.” words said about something as simple as a balloon can just as easily be a metaphor to something more important. A DREAM. so i’d like a balloon, please.

Huge, colorful, round balls that are appealing to the eye- especially the eyes of children. They are used for celebratory occasions. Their presence warms hearts and spaces.

Perhaps the child who abandoned the balloon to the thunderstorm wished to witness its demise, but the balloon plunged upwards. It shuddered under the jolting raindrops but the rain didn’t puncture its plastic hide. The rain nearly rammed it against a brick wall, but it managed to escape by a hairsbreadth and was off into the sky. The kid stayed looking up but his mother grabbed his hand and said, “It’s gone now, John.” John kept looking, not out of longing but wanting to see it burst gloriously upon lightning that would make the static sparks from his hair pale in comparison. But the balloon would give him no such pleasure.

flying high above in the sea-blue sky, dreaming of far off places alight with colour, air, life. Dreaming. waiting.

ah wow ! big colouful balloons like the ones I saw on a tv program yesterday designed to keep some people with dementia entertained – okay i’m not explaining it well but it was gorgeous! they were bouncing around the room, everyone was smilin

I think ballon s are the most fun in the whole world. They can bring life and color to a very boring place. They are fun to play with young children. They can bounce them around and hit them, and even popping them is alot of fun. I love the colors that come with balloons. Bright and cheery, pastels and dark!
By Megan on 04.27.2012
The sunlight hit the surface of the balloons as she threw them into the sky. Each had a special secret wish attached to it, released to the universe. The air was filled with colorful wishes!

The balloons floated across the robin’s egg blue sky as Jensen and the Ninja babe sat and stared. Neither said a word, but both of their heads tracked the balloons and both of them had satisfying smiles on their faces.

Will never see them again
I know that it is impossible
To catch sight of you
Although my heart aches
And my lungs burn
Away from my hand
With and without form
Someday I will
Reach that place
Where you have left me
To drift and die
Someday I will see
Of happiness and no ache
By Dang Yang on 04.27.2012
Sometimes I look into the sky and see something. It’s a terrible little thing. It can only go up but never come down. Though it might be lucky, to be able to travel so far and fast and see the world from up high.

Millions of shades and tints pass over me. The ground is overrun with color. Everything is a burst of pigment. I lift my head and find a huge mass of color speeding by. Millions of balloons fly into the sky, on a mission. They have a destination.
By Isabella Pierson on 04.27.2012
The string slipped from my fingers and it floated up above my head. The wind blew it around for a few minuets, keeping it just above my head close enough for me to read the written words on it’s surface. A prayer. A hope. A memory. I stared at it as it flew away with my best friends name on it and hoped maybe, just maybe it will find him and lead him back home. It was just a dream… but what’s life without them?

low and behold, there’s a balloon up there! look at it go. up up and away til it goes pop!

She thought about the most annoying thing she could possible think of to try to make herself forget. It was the sound of balloons rubbing together. The boy standing next to her coughed loudly. She continued to think about the balloons and tried to ignore him. He coughed again.

The balloons, for the third time, lifted into the air like great red bubbles willing to burst into light froth. As the children tossed the water bombs at each other’s skulls, I sat with a lemonade and sucked it through a straw, my shades protecting me from the sun’s toothless grin. Fortunately, my skin was able to get a rather nice tan most days, enough to get the handsome gym teacher to notice me as he walked across the blacktop.
By Belinda Roddie URL on 04.27.2012
Balloons floating, bright red, green, yellow, blue. Flying high free above. floating onward without thought or control. Freedom, flight, release and on.

She watched as the group of four year-olds fixated on the red balloon
The red balloon that had started losing its helium and had begun a silent and slow journey across the classroom towards the window
her painstakingly planned math lesson had lost their interest as the focus shifted to the magical red balloon
There was no getting them back.
At first she tried to redirect their attention back to what they SHOULD be doing
What had been planned
she noticed the magical looks that had appeared
and felt something in the air
she decided to join them
That they indeed had chosen the wiser path…

I absolutely love balloons. They come in such beautiful colors and fill your heart and soul with glee. Children love them. They are used in weddings and to send off thoughts of loved ones. Wishes are carried to heaven in them. They are used for birthday parties and for decorations.

“Mels!” the Doctor shouted.
“Look what I found!”
The Doctor appeared at the door of Melody’s bedroom with a handful of balloons.
“What on earth have you got?”
“Balloons!” he shouted excitedly. “I’ve always loved balloons!”
Mels tried hard not to laugh. “You are a cosmic nine year old.”

The colors are vibrant and full, plump with a shiny spot where the light catches on the rubber. I loosen the tie on one and let it go, up. Up to disappear slowly in the blue. It feels good. I let them all go. 17 balloons in the sky.
By Jean Moore on 04.27.2012
There were an expanse of a variety of colored balloons floating from the sky. The bobbed happily along. The people looked up in amaze. They had no idea where these balloons came from. It gave a sense of cheer and carefreeness in the stark, depressing time they were in.
By Amanda URL on 04.27.2012

The sky was a pale blue with cotton candy puffs of clouds my son and husband walked a little ahead of me they were looking at the cage with the lion it it when a crowd of people suddenly separated them from my sight my husband came bursting through the crowd with a. Panicked look on his face saying tommy was just there he was right beside me I looked up in the sky and saw the red balloon we had gotten him drifting into the distance . The panic in my blood quickly changed to disbelief the crowed he must have been separated by that. Rows of people I took off in the direction they were walking oh I will find him I

Flying high and floating onward. Never returning. Always away. Beautiful, Where are you wandering? What a great way to live. Give me a way to follow and I will. Ephemeral, but beautiful.
By Arleta on 04.27.2012
Up in the sky floating like a lost lonely thought. Gathering in their own world to connect with others with the same ideas. All colors as diverse as us! Where do they all go at the end of a long day? Are they tired at the end of their travels. Deflated with lifelessness?

By Pradheep on 04.27.2012
So many of them.
You just didn’t know how to proceed when you saw it.
That helium rainbow, that rubbery miracle, that floating wonder.
He held your hand though, and that.
That made it alright. Everything.
