Flying a Kite!


Some friends are camping in one of our fields. In this uber-technological world we are so dazzled by the latest must-have bit or byte that we often forget simple pleasures. It is also the perfect antidote to a day spent in front of a computer. Give it a go sometime. It’s good to go back…

The old kite comes out of the shed
It’s hidden in there for ages
Devoid of flight
Like a book without turned pages

But watch it soar into the sky
The wind beneath its wing
The shouts
The laughter
The oohs and aahs!
The joy simplicity can bring!
