                                                                             you         safe
                                                                              and         sound
                                                     yet the Earth rotates under your feet
              and this balloon is all you can keep   so hold on tight    with all your might
                                                                                                      
and make that fine rope count tonight


SHAPE POETRY
Contest Winner

Recognized


This is an experiment with colorful shape poetry.
The rhyme scheme is: aa bb ccc ddd ee ff ggg
The syllable count is: 10,10, 9,9, 4,4,8, 4,4,8, 10,10, 9,9, 4,4,8

While I am aware that usually shape poetry uses more basic shapes
my psyche seemed to lean towards this colorful image.
