Two boys with a kite
Pat Boran


Two boys with a kite
made from twigs and plastic bags.
Wind shrugs: “Oh, all right.”

There are two ways of reading 'quite'. - one is 'almost' And one is 'absolutely'. - just in case of suspicion - it is the latter I wholeheartedly meant!

I read it once and said "Oh!". I read it twice and said "hmm". I read it three times and said - quite lovely! A beautiful haiku.

Pat, you've captured it perfectly in 16 words! Poetry at its best.

I like this; I've never seen why 5-7-5 poems should not rhyme.
