Things to do in Sri Lanka
Poetry in Motion

A kite, soaring on the breeze
swirling and swooping
beat back by one smaller


wings flapping to keep still
searching, searching
no luck

moving on
gliding across the air currents

try again


Up, up again
spying until
something is there..

getting lower


a speedy dart back to earth
talons outstretched

a flurry of wings
as claws and fur collide

success at last!

Back at the nest, all will rest until the next day

Inspired as nature unfolded in Chiang Rai, June 2018
