NaPoWriMo Poem #4

Yesterday was a glorious day for kites.  We talked about this on the long drive to my mom's house, and when we arrived, she announced that she had kites for all of our children!  So, off we went to the elementary school adjacent to her home and did a little flying.  As I watched Georgia hold her string and saw her kite tango in the air, I felt as if I was flying too.

Holding My Kite

Holding my kite
I ride rivers of sky.
My heart has set sail.
At last I can fly!
Up here I'm not scared
of heights
or of death
as I ride windy rivers
on Mother Earth's breath.
