Image for the poem Rise


Thousands of lanterns light up the night sky,  
 Each one a memory going off into the distance,  
  Each one floating away into the dark expanse,  
   Like wishes and thoughts whisper into existence.  
   The fire burns fervently within, then into the wind,  
     Decorating the heavens like all the stars are nearby,  
      A background of lights as if the scenic night extends  
       An invitation to endless possibilities for those who try.  
        Slowly they ascend like lively lovely souls transcend,  
         Carrying hope and dreams flying gently into the night,  
          Ferrying woes and worries never to be seen again,  
           With the expectation that everything will be alright.  
         Notions and emotions drift off into the vastness,  
      Creating new made promises to wondrous eyes,  
    Bringing faith to yearning hearts and minds alike,  
When the multitude of beautiful spirits rise.
