kite in the wind
that moment of wanting
to let go

Hi Bill. Nice. Reminds me a bit of Buson's scissors poised at that flower. Yrs, K

Thanks keith, aurora, polona. Keith, I see what you mean by the Buson reference, although it hadn't occurred to me before.

I like this a lot! Bummer when the kite gets stuck in a tree. Better to hang on...

My thanks to Melanie, vaughn, floots and my anonymous guest, who, I presume, can be found at the blog cited. Yes, one of those moments when one is free to choose, but the choice, once made, can't be taken back. (I've just noted the unintended link between this and "channels," my previous post.)

Sometimes, we can hang on too long. Perfect as always.
