once we were

making a piñata

with colored tissue paper

on a balloon


a little duster

swirled in

grasping the balloon

and the colored tissue

in a beautful array

then away

off into sky

it was amazing

like a spirit

it left us

it was gone

as quckly

as it had arrived

as if the


and its

colorful tissues

went into heaven

life is like that!
