freedom with kites on the beach

Children Fly Kites

by Rubylou

Children fly kites on the spring bay breeze
Higher and higher they fly
Intertwined with wind
Loop the loop and other maneuvers
Dips, dives, and dashes
Rises and zig-zaggs
Enthralled, are the gathered on-lookers
Non-inhibited flow of flight

Fun and aimless scurrying
Loud laughs challenge waves of the beach
Youths' inexperience tangles kite strings

Kites streak, like rainbows embellishing the sky
Intricate ribbons against the Heavens
Twisting tails twirl
Eyes looking upward in wonder
Such an exhilarating experience for all.

Thank-you, VMarguarite, for the great image, "kite flight."

Once again ( and I am getting aggravated with this) Advance Editor is NOT WORKING!!!!
So I apologize for the basic print.
(One member referred to it as " EVIL EDDY".
This leads me to believe that I am NOT the only member to experience this problem.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
