“ think so a hawk soaring - I feel so a kite without a tail plummeting to earth...”

Leonard Cohen
“A kite is a victim you are sure of.
You love it because it pulls
gentle enough to call you master,
strong enough to call you fool;
because it lives
like a desperate trained falcon
in the high sweet air,
and you can always haul it down
to tame it in your drawer.

A kite is a fish you have already caught
in a pool where no fish come,
so you play him carefully and long,
and hope he won't give up,
or the wind die down.

A kite is the last poem you've written
so you give it to the wind,
but you don't let it go
until someone finds you
something else to do.”
Leonard Cohen, The Spice-Box of Earth

Khaled Hosseini
“If thou art indeed my father, then hast thou stained thy sword in the life-blood of thy son. And thous didst it of thine obstinacy.

But I appealed unto thy heart in vain, and now is the time gone for meeting.”
Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner

Katie Dale
“Mum bought me �kite for my sixth birthday. It was beautiful. Snowy white with � long tail of ribbons. She
held the string, and I� ran and ran as fast as I �could, but it kept dropping to� clumsy heap on the ground. When� I got
tired Mum took over, holding it high above her head and
running and running until, all at once, �sudden wonderful gust of wind took the kite soaring high, high into the sky, so� I had to squint to see it.
“Hold on, Rosie!” Mum had called. “Hold tight!”
And �I did, gripping the string with all my might as the kite danced high up above, gleaming bright white
against the blue sky, its ribbons sparkling in the sunlight as it flew, soaring and dipping like �bird, forever pulling at the string in my hand —higher, higher — tugging to get
Then� I let go.The string snapped from my grip and was gone.
Mum raced after it,but it was too fast,soaring up,up and away, higher than the trees. She scooped me up in �hug and told me it was all right, she'd buy me another one. But� I didn't want another one. That was my kite,and
it was free. I’d let it go.It’d wanted so much to be free that I just couldn't hold on, couldn’t hold it down.� I smiled as I� watched it whirl away — above the trees, above the birds, above the clouds, sparkling into the heavens, dancing free.
It was the most beautiful thing I �have ever seen.”
Katie Dale, Someone Else's Life

something I could always
bring back.”

Paul Fleischman
“It was as big as a box kite and mounted on a pole, gesticulating wildly with moving arms, vanes, wheels, and propellers larger and small. I'd never seen it. It was all different colors. It didn't resemble anything in particular, except at the top, where there was a woman's head. Attached to her hair were three reflectors. Shells and chimes hung around her neck. Even with half the moving parts stuck, a gust blowing through it set off a flurry of fluttering and shimmering and ringing, as if a flock of exotic birds was taking flight.”
Paul Fleischman

Rick Riordan
“Sadie was still a kite.
"You can turn back now," I told her.
She tilted her head and regarded me quizically. She let out a frustrated croak.
I cracked a smile. "You can't, can you? You're stuck?
She pecked my hand with her extremely sharp beak.
"Ow!" I complained. "It's not my fault. Keep trying."
She closed her eyes and ruffled her feathers until she looked like she was going to explode, but she stayed a kite.
"Don't worry," I said, trying to keep a straight face. "Bast will help once we get out of here.”
Rick Riordan, The Red Pyramid
