Wondersmoke

by Richard Colinson

Something had drawn them on to go
Down root crossed paths through trees
And over pools of still water
Holding the stretched reflections
Of distant amber lights

A ride worth paying for, they said
As they were sealed up
In the glassy compartments
With panoramic convex viewports
And comfortable upholstery
To wait for that moment
When they let them

Float up into the sky
Bumping bubbles rising in the night
The fragile reflective surfaces compounding
That purple wondersmoke
From the fireworks down below

This poem makes me feel as though I am "falling upwards". Intentional? Nice work!
