A Bit of Sky


From my window

the rhombus of coloured paper

Looks like a kite

But is it really?




It's come from the sky.

And now it hangs.



Between heaven and earth.

Between dreams and reality.

Between wings and roots.




From my window

I can't see what's holding it up.



Is it a wire?

Or did gravity fail?



Is some little boy coveting it

At just this moment?



Even as I wish it would break loose and fly away

Is he trying to find a way to bring it down to earth?

Kites in the sky make me think of Durga Puja. In Cal right now the skies are a vivid clean blue with great lashings of fat white clouds and between the houses and the sky there are bright patches of flying colour. Lovely
