Kite Above the Clouds

Kite above the clouds


Kite above the clouds

I am a kite with longest frill,
I fly light with much thrill.

I have a playful relation with my owner,
So I am in sight forever.

Like I ignore the strong air blowing my head,
he too ignores the strain from my thread.

A little release of strain on string,
I carry on flying till the clouds rain.

The wind can strain and ache,
I may be lost, if I am not pulled back.

Interesting conceptualisation - kite above the clouds. Good reading.

Welcome back li. Thanks for the great comment. :-). It's mutual between the two and also depends on the elements that hold them together.

Hi Hari, sounds to me your kite wants to get lost in the clouds, far above the clouds, as your poem title says. I like the playful relationship between the kite and its owner. I haven't heard a metaphor in a long time since I've been away from HubPages for so long. Thanks for bringing a refreshing experience.

Anupam you got it perfectly. :-)

Hari, this is poetry. Where you write something and leave it to the reader to get the meaning of that based on his or her perception.

I see your Kite as our children whose thread are in our hands, we take care of our children with a lot of dedication, without straining it or we may lose them, but with a bit of love looking at our kite staying at distance, how they are flourishing and reaching heights, sometimes pulling it gently so that they can be saved from unwanted dangers. And when called with love, they too come back to us with the same affection with a sweet smile on their face and intense love in their hearts.

If a kite could only talk, they would enjoy your piece. I know I did.

Hari Prasad S (author) from Bangalore on June 11, 2020:

Yes that's true eric. Thank you for your lovely note :-)

Love it. There are so many analogies for the kite and human. Yours is straight forward and a treasure.
