Kite Flying into the Infinite

Long Beach, CA

Long Beach, CA

Kite flying – colors dip and dance against the blue sky.

Pearls of light sparkle on water.

The flyer takes a stance against the wind

Clutching lines taut to keep the kite aloft.

Holding on Tight!

Holding on Tight!

And aren’t we a bit like that… holding back,

Checking ourselves against the winds of surrender.

Until letting go, when it no longer matters

If we crash and burn or soar into the Infinite Unknown.

    What a wonderful way to communicate with the unseen… I adore things that I can feel, but not see. They are wonderful teachers and reminders for me of the deeper dives always available in the simple acts of living. -x.M

    the kite may look as though it wants to fly free … but oh how it prefers the dance!
