Flying kites

Ah, those were days of fun Behind a falling kite we would run Exhilaration when we got hold As if it was a pot of precious gold Flying colourful kites high in air We felt proud of our flair Aim was to cut other players kite It was such a fun filled fight At times kite would get struck in tree Trying to get it down, so much glee When in poverty, we could not buy To make our own, we would try Now I hardly see kites in sky Kids don't know how to fly Hooked on to electronic games It is boring they all exclaim Our old fun games are all vanishing Electronic games, I feel like banishing Joyous memories outdoor games hold Bestow happiness everytime they're retold

This is special, Rama. Such a delightful interesting topic to read amidst all the other romance, love and sensual pieces. They're okay; but I get a little tired of reading of other people's failures and successes in love affairs. This was totally refreshing, thanks for sharing this gold piece. (IMHO). Congratulations on you HM; it speaks clearly and loudly here.

Yes, children do spend a lot of time inside playing video or other games. I never had a kite, but our son did own one which he enjoyed. He loved thin-wood airplanes that he would sail into the air. Congrats on your winner. Way to go. Sara

You are so right, Rama! Technology has ruined childhood for many. They'll never know the fun of using your imagination. Great write! Congrats on your win in Brian's contest! Blessings, Kim M

Sad that kids now hide in their rooms living on social media. When I was growing up I was always outside and feel better for it. Hope you're keeping well Rama. Tom
