A Kite Rises Against the Wind, Not With It

I like that kites are simple and you can take them almost anywhere.
A kite makes you look up.

I like getting them in the air. I enjoy steering them, watching them, and seeing them float higher and higher into the distance. When they become but a speck in the sky, I feel their pull as they fight against the wind. They move with the unseen currents and are held with a simple tether. When I can no longer see them high above, a string connects me to the sky. Flying one, I am both grounded and free.
