((10) Fly

Rating: 5.0
Let´s fly kites.

I´ve been working on one
And I can feel it strong
in my fingers.

I´ve got the right thread,
it´s windy,
it´s a clear winter morning,
and there is no class today.

I will feel your cold hands
While I teach you to let go,
To feel the air,
the blow, the whisper, loneliness.

And then the greyhounds will come and sit
To take a look at us

The kite is indeed a symbol. Flying up bu staying grounded down. You feel the air and imagine but also you feel the ground and stay logic (as in my poem Sophia) . Thanks Luis Gil. I give it a 10. I really enjoyed it. So fresh, so cool, so free!

Quite intriguing. I will have to think about this more. A very strong message not easily learned but vital to becoming and being human in the best meaning. Not surprizing then that you are flying kites in the cold of the winter.

The gray and white charm of a winter morning captured successfully in this windblown word painting. Lovely work, Luis. Warm regards, Sandra
