Hope & Healing Through Photography and Poetic Expression


Together they fly
caressing the sky

Embraced in a dance
enthralled with romance 

When the wind says: DESCEND
the flirtation must end

 They tumble and fall
but remember it all

    • Hey David… had to look up the lyrics and OMG – Barbara Streisand – A Woman In Love (1980) — a real blast from the past 😉 . I remember that song from my childhood! I’m glad you liked the post… saw those 2 kites flying over the water yesterday and it was all I could think of ~ this love affair of theirs! 🙂

    • Thank you Meryl.. you must think I’m resorting to major fantasy as a pain tool (I am). Yes – went over to the beach for 20 minutes yesterday and the sky was soooo blue. I actually had to desaturate this image a tad because it was too bright!! 🙂

    Lovely words to illustrate your photo.
    Hope you are feeling better after your medical procedure.

    • Thanks Victoria! Hanging in – but not getting a sense this procedure was the one. I’ll give it till Wednesday to judge though. My spine may be the victim of my hip issues:( Glad you liked the post!

  7. I can hear the waves crashing in the distant. I can hear the seagulls squeaking and their wings flapping. The children laughing as they tumble and fall. Very nice.

  8. Thanks so much silently! I love your poetic interpretation:) I was entranced by the 2 kites flying high above the shore and that inspired my poem, but the scene around those kites was very much as you describe! The beach is always a magical place.

  9. what a grand location to fly kites … where the land meets the water, probably a nice steady breeze there too … never really thought of that locale for such an activity, what have i been snoozin’ all these years ? thanks for the idea and will have to try that soon over by my area … another thing came to mind as i absorbed this wonderful photograph and that is the importance of the kite strings themselves …. are they strong enough to handle the occasional wind gusts that usher in every now and then … and then i wonder does anybody manufacture kite strings with color, a florescent purple perhaps … hmmmmm, will have to look into that a bit further … what about a kite that glows in the dark, another matter possibly worthy of investigation … thanks again for the wonderful share and hope you continue to fly steady and strong Robyn:)

    • I see some kite inventions in your future Jim!! These kites were pretty special in that they part of a sport I just learned about called kite-boarding. It’s surf boarding and flying the kites at the very same time. Seems to require great balance and skill — especially in the big waves on a windy day!! I would think then these kites were made with pretty heavy-duty string. Will have to find out – but I think color and glow-in-dark sounds grand. Will be a huge retail success — we need to get you a patent soon 🙂 Sending good thoughts your way – and thanks for all your great comments Jim!

  10. Beautiful poem Robyn! Hope you are feeling some hope and relief after your latest procedure — thinking of you!

    • So glad you liked it KT… procedure has had some “bumps” for me – but still holding on to hope; Thank you kindly!

    • Glad you liked Renee! It came to me watching those 2 kites (there were 2 guys kite boarding in the ocean) twriling around in the sky. Seemed like they were having an love affair (inerlude) — until they fell. 🙂
