The tail of a paper dragon

kitetail2
Feet buried deep in the soft sand
Face turned to the warm breath of air skittering across the ocean,
An insistent sun smiling down on me,

I lift my arms, letting fly all my worries
Tied tight to the tail of a paper dragon
Released into the wind, to float away

Leaving me carefree and at peace

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. this made me smile and remember how the sand felt (just last week) and the sun warmed from the outside in. Being carefree is a wonderful feeling.

    1. I’m waiting for the beach crowds to finally thin out so I can get back out there. I need a kite. We used to fly them all the time when our kids were younger. It really is a wonderful, carefree feeling.

        1. What I really want to do is kite surf. I watch people skipping across the waves, pulled by huge kites, and it looks like they are flying… without actually being airborne.
