columbus nimbus

columbus nimbus
first day this year in our skies
only one sky, really, but could have been fifty,
seems years since i’ve seen them like this

bursting, flaming red,orange,yellow, early morning gold
combined in rolling dough balls - like inflated balloons
over clowns and jugglers in the big new York city parade,
twisting, changing shapes as i watched;

the ropes holding them were city wires on poles
so they weren’t tied in the sky,  just added flavor.
fat, wonderful cartoon characters
sun- lit, puffy tumblers, changing shape;  practically on fire,

background blue sky patches,  white clouds too,
 oh, my,  yes.
love divine,  so fine,  all mine.
mornings like this do take me along.
