Red Kite

Watch
the
red kite
spiralling
so effortlessly.
Rising, lifted high by thermals
above the contours of this parched and dusty landscape.

Forked
tail
swivels,
directing
his graceful circles
in seemingly timeless motion.
His lifelong mate follows at measured pace, faithfully.

For
hours
airborne,
high aloft
the russet raptor
gliding with hardly a wingbeat.
I relax and watch and sense the joy of free spirits.

    Dear Mike: Must be a pleasant experience watching the red kites hover above circling. And your thoughts soar contemplating with the birds? Vivid pictures in your words. Thanks.. Leon

    Mike, I like this and I love watching the red kites around the cotswolds, glad their numbers are increasing...David

    Thanks David. We see them over our garden and the field at the back - I never tire of watching them.
