Hello, amazing poets! WhimsyGizmo here, and it’s my personal favorite day, Quadrille Monday! Today, I want us to drift about our poems using the word balloon.

Pen us a poem that’s full of hot air. Helium up something funny, or sad, or whimsical. Noun, verb, adjective, or a compound word like balloonman – the sky’s the limit. Just make sure it’s exactly 44 words long (not including the title), and contains some form of the word balloon.

Here’s a little inspiration from E.E. Cummings, a poet who always lifts me up:Screenshot 2017-03-26 10.12.49

New to the Q? Here’s what to do:
Just write a poem of precisely 44 words, including the word balloon. Link it up by clicking Mr. Linky below. Then float about awhile and visit some of the most talented poets around. The prompt is open for the whole week, so remember to come back and read (and write!) some more!
