Iron Balloons Concrete Skies- PART 2

Iron Balloons Concrete Skies (PART 2) The rising of iron balloons lifted into concrete skies Fashioned on the hour filled, solid to the core Defying gravity as they move on Infinity looks back, far and away above causality The restless day fills with bricks colliding frequently Broken glass shatters as the casualty with related damages Thick, green, shards look for objects to destroy Rise to the alien worlds attention More rounded than not, a shattered world survives nothing Avoiding sharp edges, solids and liquids Fluid in their movements Colored orbs of iron growing heavier as they go floating Balloons merge with concrete skies Seen through neon trees perceived as oddities Explored by astounded astronauts in wonder Once discovered after midnight, which is always in existence Observations on balloons are permitted by the crew Limited operational parameters of planetary matters Will be considered on underwater findings as well Under scrutiny and compliance with the interstellar law Such items found are not authorized to be handled If discovered on the ground Items can be looked at but not touched Abidance of natural order must be trusted To maintain the universe and pure science as perceived Concrete ideas like skies have the final word Iron clad, as it too has its pressure to do good In the twinkling of an eye the sky collapses Gravity eats its own Black holes look for something to digest Iron balloons can only do their best

Hi Jan! Thanks again. I appreciate your comments. It took me over a week with countless rewrites to assemble this poem. What a project. I feel good about this one. Glad you liked it. Thanks again for your suggestion to post it in 2 segments. Take care. Earl
