we were flying kites
 









we were flying kites



with the sea
and the sky
proofing my writes
my mind is blank
free like a kite
let words come
to my senses
as nature gives
murmuring of the streams
singing of birds
without form
design but from my dreams



the rhyming sounds
like the whispering breeze
the rhythm measures
the pulse of a metronome
no couplets
no deep verbs
modifiers or adjectives
simple as can be
mind like the wind
blowing free



with ancient mirth
the stars are laughing
scorn a shining spear
sorry self spent
with sardonic glee
carry not my bench
uplift myself to a pedestal
but win my worth
in other's eyes
the wisdom fairly earned
glory, victory won



roaming far and wide
up in the skies
free like a kite
in the streets of dreams
in dizzying cities
deafening temples
cavernous tabernacles
gloom of giant trees
through wasted ways
of the earth i trod
into the depths
of the purple sea
at the peak of
tongue of flame
then i was awaken
all were but dreams



my gladness exceeding
having you as my friend
quite marvelous feeling
felt deep to my bones
stay as you are
a patient friend
who peruses my poems
from the start to end...

damai!
