Sky felt lonely, so she went up in the sky to give a company. They both enjoyed together.

That’s what the kites thought.

But soon the kite started falling away from the sky, her love! The sky knew that he will be getting another one soon and the kite? She was torn apart, now she is of no use, sadly. She could never meet him again but all she can do is to see him. Maybe.

The kites don’t fly but they are made to. Light shows her the way and the air gives her direction. She tries to be free, and then she gets pulled away in a direction, she doesn’t want to. She resists. She fails. But still she could be seen up there; lost yet present! Ohh!! She looked at the string tied to her, the reason she can fly and not be free. After all, that’s how she is meant to be. Alas! Who says them to be symbolic of freedom?

Man, the kites are meant for flying only. What worth do they have if they can’t even do that? They are never independent, they are held in control always. Is that what they call a destiny!!?

Did I miss it?
Happy holiday fellas!
Happy Independence Day, I mean!

Dhanyawaad for reading!๐Ÿ’ซ

  1. You cut the string and the kites will be freed but only momentarily. At one point, they will always return to the ground. But when connected to the string, they won’t have any freedom but they can fly with the wind’s permission. A very thought-provoking post, Chetna!

  2. The symbolism is so striking!!! โคโค
    So, some boundations are actually good for us. But in quest of being so called ‘independent’ we sometimes lose our support.

    Like those who leave their parents *on purpose*, to live independently, they don’t know that one day regret would hug them so tightly!
    Moreover, Independence should be enjoyed in a limit because if you’ll cross the ‘lakshman rekha’ Raavan will come.

    Loved reading and interpreting it. Happy Independence Day! Jai Hind! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ

    1. Don’t you think there is a difference between something that supports us to go higher and something that holds us back? Sometimes we need to walk just by ourselves. But then, it doesn’t mean that we are not supported or we are crossing the limits.

      I agree. There are some limits crossing which brings our downfall.

      Thanks a lot Bhanu for sharing your thoughts here. It’s always a pleasure to have you.๐Ÿ’œ

      1. Definitely they’re altogether different, opposite things.
        Going on your own is never a bad thing but at the expense of your family/support is not right according to me. ๐Ÿ™‚
        Kite’s situation can be interpreted in many ways which makes your piece worth a thorough thinking!
        Always glad to come here Chittu! โคโค๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  3. You bring hidden thoughts to the surface, both yours, and of your readers. Interesting that a kite needs a string to fly, but that very string is her fetter. A string if strong, and ready to face the slaps of wind, and other strings fighting for space in the sky can together enjoy the flight into the sky with its kite. And if it is willing to loose itself, and not be driven by the urge to be taut, universe is the limit. And if then, unknowingly she is about to get lost among the clouds, he could give a gentle tug, and direct her towards the clear sky, all the while unspooling, and letting it fly higher and higher. Together, they can be on the top of the whole world, and see for themselves, how the kites are cut down below, with a madness to control and win.

    1. May the kite reach to the cloud to rise higher. May it hold on enough against the strongest of the winds to reach at the top and be with her cloud.
      Well, sometimes it does sounds like a fantasy. But you never know.๐Ÿค
      Why do you always write like this!!! Rather how do you do this! I mean I just can’t help but reread your comment.

      1. Whenever your words give birth to poems in me, I pour them out. It actually was such an amazing idea, of kites, and their strings. The mind naturally soars high. Thanks Chetna, and keep soaring. ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ™


  4. Great poet chetna!!!
    Freedom with bounded string!
    A thought provoking post ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿคฉ
    True as well.. being independent doesn’t mean to be free.. Or rather say.. out of control…
    Keep writing and sharing your wonderful thoughts with us ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ

  5. The artistic imagery & the creative essence of the poem was glorious to say the least. Perhaps we all are like kites in our own way, tied to something or the other. Occasionally we may get freed from it but if draw away from it for too long then it may have an adverse effect on our existence. Beautiful articulation of thoughts!

  6. As usual you kinda confused ๐Ÿ˜ตme of what you are trying to say through this piece of yours

    But then my mind spoke to me that it the uniqueness of writing, that it conveys a lot more meanings then just a one or two, depending upon the reader

    What I believe is limits are necessary everywhere may it be relationships or life in general.
    Everything is appeasing when done in certain boundaries we set for ourselves.
    These are the ones which help us decide when to stop โ›”.
    ‘Living your life on your terms’ also has the words ‘terms’ in it.

    A very thought provoking poem!
    Keep writing๐Ÿ˜Š and keep confusing me ๐Ÿ˜œ

      Limits are necessary for the good as long as we ain’t forced to follow them, either by ourselves or by others.
      Ahh! Well said Komal.
      Thanks a lot. I got you for this man.๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜Ž
