Activity Fun Sky Kite Ocean Flying Beach

The kite and the wind
Beautiful partners, in the choreography

Of matter and medium.
Flesh and drift.

They dance like there’s no tomorrow
In somersaults and flips

And when the wind gathers speed
The kite dances stronger

And the thread hangs on to the tension
Knowing how steep the final climb is, to heaven,

And how deep the abyss will be,
When Lucifer unstrings the cord

And the kite plummets
Like an albatross crashing to hell.
