I Flew – Lindsay Tocik

The first time I flew a kite without my father
Sky chose to tease Earth with sorrowful weather.
I walked with three others whom no longer know my name,
while we searched for open fields to launch our turtle tether.

Sky chose to tease Earth with sorrowful weather,
but Sun refused to give into Darkness. You should have seen her shine.
While we search for open fields to launch our turtle tether,
we shared chuckles, and Kite’s string became entangled with Vine’s.

As Sun refused to give into Darkness (you should have seen her shine),
I walked with three others whom no longer know my name.
We shared chuckles, and Kite’s string became entangled with Vine’s,
The first time I flew a kite without my father.

Note:
