Kites tipping and turning
on the wind,
gliding in cloudless blue.
Dragons, birds, square and round,
in brilliant colors,
traversing the sky,
tethered to the ground
by earthbound bodies.

Children running to keep up
with their runaway kites,
their heads thrown back,
laughter bubbling out of them
in joy.

Summer riding in blowing
spring away.
