[photo I took on kite-flying day with grandson]
How do I explore a limitless sky
I am mere kite flying free unfettered
to heights unknown no boundaries in sight
No longer earthbound I break loose from strings
that hold me captive, peer at loaves of clouds
closing and parting to show horizons
beyond the blue, follow a trail of mist
floating like silken veil, dreaming of what
magical places will dazzle me there.
Below I see the white of breaking waves
on the reef, the sun turning patches of
sea silver, I am privileged and awed.
I am not a leaf tossed in hurricane
but an explorer of worlds uncharted
pursuing all my days unfazed and bold.
Come hold me and join my world.
