Hey, I've never read this group, but I've written a poem which you might
enjoy.  If you care to respond, please do so in private as I have no real
time to read through the posts.  (Please distribute only with my name, etc.)
I reserve the right to retain all rights.  Thanks.  Hope you enjoy! jon

                               I
                            went to
                       fly kites at night

                  Wishing  peaceful  thoughts.
            Searching how to live.  I took the path
        up towards the hill where flyers kite at night.
         Cast out their strings, and ride the breezes.

            Moonlight  falls  around,  and  shadows
              become bright.  Prone gives view to
               stars and kites and frees the mind
               to flight.  It's on the back that
                  flyers kite.  I search the
                    sky and find the breath
                     which lifts me to the
                       stars and fills me
                         full of life.

                             While
                         flying kites
                              at
                             night

(p.s. The lines look nice when using Palatino font on a Mac.)

(bonus sig)...

I saw this girl crying
by the wheel of her car
she had balloons in the back seat
the front door ajar
She never moved so I just whispered goodbye
she reminded me of you when you cry
and I didn't mean to make you cry

From "Innocent One" by Michael Penn
