#AtoZChallenge - 4-13-2017 - Letter K:

K is for Kite

A flimsy piece of paper
A backbone of straw
An optional tail
Ready to set sail

Bright colours for cheer
Light, so light, like air
Waiting for a zephyr
To lift off on a wing and a prayer

Soaring in the sky
Like hopes so high
Trusting in the wind
To help and to be kind.

Dallying  with the clouds
Tethered to the ground
Vying with the crowds
To stay aloft and around.

Glass powder-sheathed twine
An unlikely lifeline
An innocuous looking sword
To cut or be cut is the word.

Once cut, it is destiny
To soar higher, unfettered,  free
Or to earth float down
Tattered, shredded into oblivion.


  1. Lovely words to describe a common event in India. I've never flown a kite in my life, but the idea always fascinated me.

    Of late though, we get to hear about a lot of instances of sharp manjhas doing great damage. It's sad when one person's fun becomes cause for misery for others.

    Nice reading. Do drop by mine. I blog at


    1. Thank you so much!Yes, i think manjhaas were banned at some point, but i don't know if that's being followed.
