Poetic Thursday: Sunrise Flight

It’s the last day of June, and the last Poetic Thursday of the month. We’re joining Pam, Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats, as we do each Thursday, for some poetry.

This is our photo inspiration for today’s poem:

And here’s my poem:

Sunrise Flight

Climb inside
for a ride
under the skies
at sunrise.
Golden glow,
earth below.
Love these views,
seen with you.
It’s been grand,
now we land.

Motor Man and I have taken three hot air balloon flights, all at sunrise, and it really is like no other experience. On this page, to the right, there’s a category “Hot Air Balloons”. If you’re new to the blog and would like to read previous posts about our experiences, both flying and crewing for a friend, just click on that category.

Here’s a video that was shot from another balloon during one of our flights:

    A perfect picture for you to write a poem about.

  4. I bet that was a lot of fun. I have a bit of a fear of heights. I’m fine on a plane or in a tall building, but standing close to an edge that can be fallen off of, no thanks. I would have to be tied onto the balloon. 🙂

  5. Oh, this picture and poem were definitely up your alley! Great job.
