A Balloon Poem from a passenger

One Sunday morning 16 bleary eyed passengers gather to join aeronauts for an experience.

A 4 wheeled beast drives off into the darkness in search of a beginning.

Destination found and the activity starts, cold under foot, gentle chatter, nervous movement, crew direct us.

Bust of noise, a puff of wind, dragons breath, and bright colours appear.

All aboard, a rage of fire, we levitate and the world looks smaller.

Way up high, it is so silent, gravity seems to be defiant.

Mind wanders of greater things, Oh to be a bird is the way, lets not deny it!

Time rushes by, the world gets big, reality creeps in, and we are at an end.

Thanks John and crew for a lifetime memory.”
