Hot air balloons are a common sight from my back deck. We often spot them on clear, warmish days near the northern horizon, drifting steadily nearer above the rooftops. A few days ago I saw the first balloon of the season, and that is what inspired this concrete poem.
This poem was fun to write and format. The formatting of a poem like this can easily be done in a word processing program, but I took it a step further and made a fun background for it using Picmonkey. What do you think?
