Little Red Kite



Little red kite,
Bobbing up and down,
In the big blue sky.

White clouds,
Dodge birds,
That scatter about.

Red kite,
Pulls hard,
At the little boy.

Look,
There goes the little boy,
To the sky.

I had such a fascination with kites when I was a child.
I always looked at them as magical and I wondered what would happen and where I would go if I were whisked away by one.

I had a "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" kite when I was a kid. It never pulled me off the ground, but I wish it had!

Wriju said...

It's actually inspired by a painting.
No I haven't read that one. I have heard about Khaled Hosseini, is the book good?

The Kite Runner is a very nice book. There is a more detailed entry on my blog. Thats my review of the book :-)
