The tail of a paper dragon

kitetail2
Feet buried deep in the soft sand
Face turned to the warm breath of air skittering across the ocean,
An insistent sun smiling down on me,

I lift my arms, letting fly all my worries
Tied tight to the tail of a paper dragon
Released into the wind, to float away

Leaving me carefree and at peace

    • I’m waiting for the beach crowds to finally thin out so I can get back out there. I need a kite. We used to fly them all the time when our kids were younger. It really is a wonderful, carefree feeling.

        • What I really want to do is kite surf. I watch people skipping across the waves, pulled by huge kites, and it looks like they are flying… without actually being airborne.
