Kaleidoscopic Kite

I am kaleidoscopic kite soaring high~ 'neath August sky whilst children cheer as I cuddle cotton clouds and glide down myrtle mountains. I soar ~ I flap ~ yet unafraid for I am free to enjoy summer's spree in the comfort of your hands. Hold my string not so tight, not so loose and never let me go. 17 August 2020 STRAND COMPLETELY NEW (23) ,any form,any theme Contest Judged: 8/17/2020 1st place

A kite is fragile....Have to hold the string tight, or it may fly away in the wind...This poem is more personification then free verse... But written so well .

"not so tight, / not so loose / and never let me go" sounds like an endearing love poem. Way to go on your first place with this engaging poem, your kite makes a wonderful metaphor for so many thoughts of freedom and flying. Congrats ~ John
