Flying High

Flying High


There are many kinds of high

Each and every day

Don’t worry about your dope 

When a kite you can crave


Take it easy with yourself

And let your kite fly high

With the sun shining there

And sea gulls in the sky  


Soar high in the clouds

Way above the Earth

With some others too 

Flying high and observed


Know your kite is a gift

And fly it far and wide

And enjoy diving it

There in the deep blue skies


Let not your kite come down

But make long the scene

Knowing your kite is best

When nearly out of string

      I was flying along with each line W.C. - - I like the way you give duo meaning to the actual flight we all must take. Thanks for sharing the importance of smoothing the way before we get too high.

        Thanks, Fay. Flying too high is a danger. We're much better off not so far up. The physics of flying operate and help us find our right place.

          Thanks, Claudelle! I used to really enjoy flying kites! There was a kite-fling contest at my elementary school. I think we got 3rd place. I've flown a kite as an adult and enjoyed it as well.

          Good write. There is a great sense of freedom when flying kites.

            Thanks, Goldfinch. Freedom is a good thing.
