Written for dVerse Poets: Quadrille #29 (posted by WhimsyGizmo)
Hello, amazing poets! WhimsyGizmo here, and it’s my personal favorite day, Quadrille Monday! Today, I want us to drift about our poems using the word balloon.
If you give me a doubloon
I will buy you a balloon,
heart-shaped red, a dazzling thing
for you to dangle from a thin, white string.
Careful not to pop it, or I believe
they will say you wear your heart on your sleeve.
