Writing About the Air

For the Flying of Kites on October Days The air is tight clear brittle like glass wrapping the earth sunlight sparkles separating shattering on impact crystal leaves reflect a million colors startling clear and brilliant limbs release their handful of jewels rubies amethyst flaming diamonds scattered and throwing a million strands of light across the land The sky begins to open as trees spread bare branches This is the season of the sky the rich earth dissolves into air we circle the earth with bare branches open the sky and follow the wind for a moment like a brief dream before sleep for a quiet afternoon where we ride the wind into the day sky balancing between seasons before the sky swallows the last days of autumn for now, stillness balance and the flying of kites on October days
