A little whimsy goes a long way...

Catching a ride on the
back of the wind
cotton candy clouds
soaring and swooping
as the heights ascend
far from the
urban crowds
ribbons of neon 
on the sky
chasing my tail
birds and the eagles
envy my fly 
with the winds 
we set sail
circles of infinity
braiding the air
honeysuckle breezes
sugar sweet
sun and the earth 
having an affair
kisses of
celestial conceit
catching a ride
on the tails of the
ascending to
magical heights
soaring and swooping
higher than trees
me and my shadow
flying kites

I am not sure how I missed this piece of your...but I am glad I found it tonight. It composition is excellent...and the message...well, it reminded me of one summer long ago when my sons and I built a 20 foot dragon kite from scratch. They called it Smaug after the dragon in the Hobbit. As a child, I built and flew a variety of kites, but that summer was the best. Thanks for the good memory lane trip, lady poet.

Hi Mom. I told you that you were going to be famous.....Neon Breezes is a great title for this. It goes well the imagery. Great job! I love you.

It's fun flying all kinds of kites
Even when we used them for fights.
With sharp spines protruding
Attacking, eluding,
We'd down everything in our sights.

"Neon Breezes" lights up the way to imagination and stands to give

I really like how you did this Mari,
especially the ending.

I love to fly kites and, when not doing so,
I derive as much pleasure out of just
staring at the clouds and the sky.

You made me dizzy reading this but the effort was well worth a little discomfort. LOL That's what I get for chasing my own tail, I guess. LOL2

I think you have expressed the freedom and joy of the spirits of both of you in this write, Mari! Kites, by their very nature, bring out these liberating, playful and delightful frissons in us and your form and expression capture the mood and description well. Just the weather for it, to! Fly high, Mari! LOL Kate xx

As a child, I imagined myself orchestrating the wind and I had dreams of flying. This poem reminded me of this and of the song that contained the lyric, "when I was a hands felt like two balloons". The rhythm of this poem is like a balloon(kite)being tossed on the wind. Whimsy is a word I haven't visited lately, so I thank you, Mari.
Reviewed by Cynth'ya 3/16/2005
I see a background of pink clouds, little specks on a canvas representing people too busy to stop and look up, and a flirty little rag on the end of a pointed stick that is shaped like a cross. If there were kites in the middle east 2,000 years ago, Jesus would have flown one.

blessin's, a very light and lovely right Mari.

Dear Mari,

Thank you for again sharing another one of your imagination creation observation poems. I just love them. They say so much with minimum words. And they descibe our present-day harsh reality, the one which my mind loves to dwell on, and in, on a daily basis.

My last ear is going rapidly, and is doing so, while happily whistling.

Many Hugs.

I agree with Mary, this is so beautiful and the imagery of the clouds, the birds and 'kisses of celestial conceit catching a ride on the tails of the breeze'. And they call the wind Maria. Very beautiful Mari. May the Lord be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & (((HUGS))), Barbie
