The Kite Dance

by Tracey Evans

Tickled by fingers of the wind

bouncing on the tide of warm air

a tender massage

from exhalations of breath.

 

Soaring and diving

dancing and waving

swishing and swaying

in tune with nature’s melody.

 

In harmony with leaves

synchronised with trees

to the sound of the beat

of Mother Earth’s heart.

 

In the final breath

a tender embrace

a grand gesture and bow

in thanks for the dance.
