I flew higher than the world.
My mind took pictures in black and white
And I heard the wind as it whirled
Around my ears in the sunlight.
Maybe, if I didn’t live in the country
I would see the city in full color.
But I’ve made a new discovery:
The city is beautiful and worth more than a silver dollar.
As I flew higher: I threw splashes of color down onto the city
Until I could laugh, because it was truly beautiful to see.
