unforeseen andΒ out of character

when you released me

i soared high; i spun

shimmer saunter, aloft

taunting tassels at the sun


rainbow shadow skipping over ground

chase it, heed the fluttering sound

rich reveries release

and a polish on palm remained

friction fused memories

a scar there ingrained

plastic tattered trailing

crucified on splintering frame

to soar and dip

in giddy refrain


predisposed to lure of flight

spiral of slackening string

i am a kite

    1. How faithfully you read and place the sweetest of comments, even when the author has been in absentia for so long …. I appreciate you always dear Val! πŸ’œ


  1. Wow! I’m happy to see your post today. πŸ™‚ It’s been a while. What happened my beautiful Diana? I missed your presence here even though I’ve been having skeletal moments here too. Nice to see you again. πŸ™‚


    1. Skeletal moments! Great way to describe our fleeting online moments. Oh sweet Stella, life distracts and fills our attentions happily it seems. Sunrises, and dusk moments and all the wonderful vignettes and people in between. I hope you are as content as I …. and less guilty (I’ve been so neglecting WP!) πŸ’œπŸ’œ


      1. So true. The exigencies of life distracts and take us through other routes. It’s part of existence… So nice to read your soothing words again. Xoxo


    1. Dear K ❀ Spring thoughts and wide smiles abounding as I type these words to you. I too miss you….the late night hours of writing, reading and heart warming interactions as the pace of offline life accelerates and somehow rejuvenates the heart and soul ❀

  2. You brought me the warmest colours in glazed paper through your words… I can’t even describe what this made me feel…so serene, so beautiful! Life’s good when I read you, dear Armadillo! β€πŸ˜˜πŸ’œ

    You made my day with your messages and my month with this. Such an awaited and adorable piece!

    Heart aloft and happy thoughts descend,
    with lofty thoughts from a loftier friend! Hehe.

    1. Your enduring, and endearing support I never take for granted dear Ishu … it seems no matter how occupied you are, you still make time to acknowledge the plodding feet of a sluggish Armadillo. Disoriented and stomping on spring blooms I might say haha
      The warm colours of the glazed paper (as you so beautifully spoke) float higher because of your attention. Happy Day to you from afar …. which isn’t far at all: a place in your very heart ❀


    1. Dear Renee, how lovely to hear from you…. and I might hasten to add, Happy Spring from North of the Border. I should really change my profile shot: the West coast has experienced a seemingly overnight transition to blossoms and tulips! It’s almost time for a nice love poem or three with spring in the air don’t you think πŸ™‚ Are you feeling inspired by the season of reawakening?
