  10. Clouds get dark and must rain..lightning strikes and it sparkles brilliantly, as if to give warning to the crackling sound..that would follow..as the man holds on to pink balloons strings in hands..the loose ends resemble the lightning above, filled with air will go up..if the grasp loosens a bit..the man has aged and is lean..he watches the sky..and wants to see it clean..with sun shining once more..he has balloons to let go..he holds hope in his hands..and faith in his heart..no matter how weak..he has a strong believe.
