Kite, Eyes and Rubies


Above a cliff
A kite flies high
Scissors snap
hand slides down
to her side

The faithful kite
drops to the ground

Pick it up!
Fly it high one more time

This time round kite and girl
Waltz
sky high

It’s time
For girl and kite –
entwined – to become
One

Free fall down the rocky falls
It hurts
She’s had enough of this
ride of life

Silent waters
hold her down in a tight embrace

No! The time to sink away has not yet come!

Take that shell
And free yourself from that string that binds

Good girl –
Now up and up you must go
Grab the air above with might and
Wait for the White Eagle to come
And claim your eyes

Red rubies in their stead
White eagle
Will leave behind.
