kite - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Learning how to control the kite proved harder than I had expected. It turned on the slightest pull into an exaggerated dive, then I would overreact and pull wildly with the other hand. It never ended prettily. When Eric flies it he seems so serene, and the kite a reflection of his mind in the sky; graceful thought patterns and even temperament. Maybe that's why I crash it every time, I can't say my head's like that. But one day I'm gonna get it, I'm gonna be the most zen-ist damn zen person around and that kite will dance like Bramwell Tovey himself is conducting.
This wasn't some tissue paper and stick creation you might see in a school yard, this was a dual line sports kite with a polyester sail and carbon rods. It sailed above me, slicing the air, dancing like a seasoned pro. The kite tugged at the strings so hard it pulled me to my tip-toes and then several yards forward, if the wind was any stronger I'd be flying too.
