  on the great lake
choppy waves advancing
and retreating
a ring surrounded sun
this perfect day

swooping swaying soaring
weaving in the wind
to music
kites were dancing
precise as blue angles
their grounded pilots
pulling string
as God and I were watching
with hearts flying

Very nice. I recently read a novel called "Dancing on the Wind" (mary jo putney) and thought it was a nice title (maybe what leaves do in the fall) until the author explained that it was an 1800's metaphor for someone dangling at the end of a hangman's rope.
