Congratulations on your well-deserved first place finish, Pers!
Your poem is concisely clever, and you even took the prompt's closing invitation literally. It says that your poem can be of any type, and yours certainly is!

    Thank you so much Don. We had a friend who , every New Year, used to build , with our help, a hot air balloon. The canopy was of the flimsiest material . We lit the little burner while holding the canopy. As it filled we released our hold. It rose into the night sky. Fortunately we were nowhere near a flight path....in the African bush.

A well-written contest entry. I think you have completed the challenge of the contest well. Your words flowed well line to line combining easily and forming the message of the poem for the reader.

    I sometimes wonder whether my writing is too short and curt but your kind review has given me a boost. Thank you.

Your poem is upbeat and illustrated well with the hot air balloon. Nicely composed in this short piece. You have used all the words. Rhyming is smooth. Marilyn

That was a fantasy of mine too! I was fortunate to have that dream come true - riding in a hot air balloon. Very well written. Good luck in the contest.

A good use of the words needed to be included. Original subject matter which leant itself well to the words. Best of luck in the voting.
