A Kite's flight


Kites soar high

In hazy blue skies

As threaded spools and human hands

Hold them in aerial orbits


Hovering over

Gleaming glass threads

The winds fight for a place

In the kite race


A sharp strike

Severes the stubborn thread

I break free onto open blue skies

As shards of glass fall


The buoyant breeze blows me

Through the clumping clouds

Cloudspun strings 

Shall chase me


Stringed dreams

Sail by my side

As I fly amongst

The hues of the sky 


When the wind no longer

Winds me up

I plunge into a sea of clouds

Like a sinking ship


I fall into the hands

Of stumbling, toddling life

As I awake from my dreams

I'm a child's dream come true


She holds me up with her tiny hands

As a wisp of wind wafts me

And I fly like a bird

Into the sunset
