Kite Kid

book cover plastics,

coco floor broom sticks,

and threads from woolen balls mama used to knit

were all I needed to make

and fly a kite against the wind

    Such a simple poem but yet it says so much! I remember my home made kite that my dad made me and then all other memories of dad flood back. Thank you for bringing those to the fore once again.
