A to Z Challenge: K is for kite

K is for kite
I sail in the sky
with a string and a tail
to make it fly high.

I loved flying kites as a kid. I was never very good, but my older brother was. He sent back for mail-order kites and got all sorts of unique ones, including a box kite. One time he rigged up a light on one of his kites and flew it at night. He told me and my sister it was a UFO. I was so young I believed him and that made his kite flying all the more fun for him.

Did you fly kites as a kid?


  1. I've never flown one, but always admired them. Some of the Asian examples are incredible.

  2. And like Francene says, the Asian ones are incredible, especially how they can manipulate them, I remember that just getting a kite up in the air was a challenge.
