Interesting, you address what occurred to me when I read the prompt. That balance is dynamic, something we learn to achieve again and again, like those 'copter blades whirring. Balance requiring full and ongoing awareness.

Unique, interesting approach to the prompt - so few words yet multi-layered. Great idea.

Nice approach - always great to see someone finding inspiration in places not typically poetic.

Although it freaks me out how a bit of spinning metal keeps all that weight in the air.
