The Kite

The Kite

The Kite

King of the wind,
Master of sky,
What can you see
From your throne upon high?

Just look at your view,
A spellbinding scene,
Soar valleys & hillsides,
Skim canopies clean!

Dancing in circles,
Spreading your wings,
Gliding with grace,
On fresh breezes that sing.

Magnificent creature,
Regal and strong,
A swooping raptorial,
Kite, a birdsong.

I’m fascinated by the Red Kites that regularly fly over the village & surrounding countryside. You can see exactly why they have that name, the way they hang in the air, the seldom flapping of wings, just the occasional screech..a wonderful sight!

    They are magnificent aren’t they. We get lots of Buzzards now. We used to see them only rarely!

      Yes, Peter, they are amazing. I love to see them as the sun sets & it illuminates the underside of their wings. Hardly any sun today though. We do get Buzzards too, but more Red Kites. I think I’ve seen more Buzzards these past few months, than we did when we first arrived here, in November 2017.

        We are doing silly things to the planet and it is showing in all sorts of ways!

          Indeed! Slight or slow changes but they all take their toll, eventually.

    I love watching the hawks soar overhead. i could watch them for hours!

      Yes, there’s something very calming about their grace in the sky. It’s great that we’re so lucky to be able to see them 😊

      1. Dorinda Duclos says:

        I wish I could soar about for a bit, just get away from it all. 🙂

        1. Debbie Jones says:

          Wouldn’t it be wonderful! Peace, calm & solitude, where no one can reach you, just for a little while, when you need it, to recharge! Hope you find your own happy today 😊

          1. Dorinda Duclos says:

            Thanks, Debbie! You, too. 🙂

    I love kites. They have a mind of their own once they are in the air.

    1. Debbie Jones says:

      You’re right, Hope! It’s amazing how quickly they can be there one moment, then gone the next, or spiral higher & higher, almost out of view..fascinating!
