Kite Life

Try and try
to hold the thread of life
and watch the kite take flight
dipping and soaring
a tiny ballerina
up in the dazzling sky
some days are better
– blue and crystal clear
some days are rough
– you tumble and wither
then the days where you grip
tighter and fiercer through the stormy weather
and when the sky clears
after the storm or torrential rain
you find your kite freed from tether
or drenched and soggy
teaching you a lesson
some days are better for flight
and some to shy away inside
in this kite life.
