The Creator's Kite

Updated on May 4, 2015
Source

And the winds will take me too far,

I'll be dropped onto the trees,

Struggling to wriggle out myself,

But to be entangled tight and wild.


Silent in the company of leaves,

Watching the birds day and night,

I think of the winds and the sky,

I think of flying low and so high.


Why did the string puller leave me ?

Why did Creator make me so weak ?

I wanted to fly on my own free will,

Without the string and the winds.


I never thought of designs and ways,

Of my Creator and about the perils,

He loved the play only this way,

Why the Creator conceived me so ?


Wonder He is still ever engrossed,

To curve out things many mortal,

That would soar sometimes so high,

Till the string is strongly pulled in !

A String Pulled In

My Creator made me with great love,

He took out a colorful paper,

And cut it very gently with soft hands,

To give it a very attractive shape.


Still it was a very delicate piece,

And not very fit to venture out,

My Creator knew it so well,

He made my skeleton with sticks.


To make my body firm,glued it hard,

Now I was all ready to soar high,

Into the heart of the great sky,

My Creator then bade me goodbye.


Soon I reached an alien's home,

One end of string on my body,

And the other was in his hands,

He made me danced up and down.


Does my Creator remember me ?

I think He is too busy in His chores,

To create His awesome wares,

And to sell them in open bazaars.


I too have forgotten Him so fast,

What use now is to long for ?

One who is the least bothered,

The string puller is now my savior.


I happily move up high on the clouds,

Sometimes my heart beats so fast,

When the string is let loose by him,

But the string puller is very artful.


He saves me from so many falls,

He so deftly sends me up and high,

and his string seems very strong,

I find my life so safe in his hands.


Yet my life is full of uncertainties,

This makes me really very sad,

Any day can be the last in my life,

When the string'll be loosened away.

      Wonderful poem, filled with so much wondering about this life. I think life is so precious to us because of our weaknesses and of our knowledge about our mortality. Maybe that is the point:)

      I would love to see the string and the string puller with all love but they're invisible as yet. That's why I adore my flying. So kind of you, Eric to have appreciated the poem and commented so kindly. Thank you very much. :-)

      Jamie, I just described my day of flying a kite with my friends. It felt so nice that you liked the way I spent my day. Thank you for your visit and all appreciation and your beautiful comment. :-)

      My friend do not take me lightly. I influence others. It is who I am. And when you influence me the ripple occurs. And you move what others saw as mountains. And the butterfly wings move spirit ten thousand miles away. Your good is huge. Namaste!

      Jo, so kind of you to have visited this hub and appreciated this poem. I'm honored that it reminded you of your existence with the Absolute One. And how appropriate & true words about the poem you uttered " bittersweet". Isn't life so ? Nonetheless, it is a great and very precious gift to us and we have to savor it with all our heart. Thank you very much. :-)

      What a lovely and soulful comment ! Eric. To be fair, when I write, I write with the sole purpose of expressing my feelings and to satiate my curiosity about this whole existence . Sometimes I grapple with the matching words but I'm sure words simply pour out just because I'm surrounded by so kind friends like you and their blessings. You came twice on this hub, this is a great honor and am really very grateful to you for your constant support. :-)

      Wonderful poem and so meaningful!

      I think we all think this way. Whenever something terrible happens, we conclude that God has forgotten us and we don't realize, he is always there to protect us and take care of us. Only thing we should ask from him is to give strength to overcome the many obstacles and trials of life.

      Very nice and expressive!

      So wise words ! ChitrangdaSharan. We should have staunch and impeccable faith in order to have serenity and peace in our lives. You are so right it is we who have distracted in different directions, He is always there and loves to share our experiences, bitter or sweet with open arms and all love. Thanks for your kind visit and so insightful comments. :-)

      well, this made a fantastic read and was very thought-provoking too.

      Reliance on God is the best option cos he never leaves us even when we are down. All we need do is to remember him and do what is right!

      keep writing!

      Harish, I love your earnest enthusiasm in this pouring forth of your expressions of both heights of faith and depths of challenges to it in the business of living here on this ‘alien planet home’. Wondering what it all means and whether or not you’ve been forgotten or ‘cut loose’ out here on the edge of the galaxy is a feeling many endure at times.

      Ok, so I’m reading more into it. But you obviously were questioning the everyday challenges as well as your/our relationship to the maker of IT ALL.

      Also I enjoyed reading your comment to Jamie that your own day of kite flying became the metaphor for how you expressed it. It seems to take the reader aboard on the flight of fantasy and thought! No need to be too concerned with rhyming lines when it simply says it so beautifully and sincerely as yours does as it pours forth. Well done!

      You did a beautiful job of describing The relationship between Creator and His creation. I love how you expressed how after creating us He let's us go in order to pursue our destinies. There are times we cannot sense Him through trials and tribulations. Like our earthly parents He does not save us through everything to teach us to grow spiritually. He has however armed us with the tools to be able to succeed in whatever task He asks of us: and we can trust Him because the bible says all things work for the good of those who love God. Absolutely outstanding voted up!

      Nellieanna, so kind of you to have graced this hub with your so insightful comments. When I see things of the world, law of nature, all seasons, sun, moon, stars etc. I am amazed by the perfection and precision ingrained in all these. Pondering these things and their workings, it occurs to me that there must be solution to each question arising in our mind. So, whatever, I scribble here , in fact, is the craving of this unquenched quest. Thanks for appreciating the poem and your wise comments.

      I'm glad that you liked this poem. Dana, initially when I wanted to compose it, I just thought of it as a comparison of vissicittitudes of our life and that of kites. But, when I poured out my feelings, it turned out to be something so different and words connected to the One Absolute. Maybe, it is also wonderful that sometimes we can't expect what we'll churn out while on our move. Thanks for appreciating this poem and your wise comments.

      I do so believe there are solutions which arise in our minds, if we pay heed to them. And, in regard to your reply to Dana, I am also convinced that if we allow our whole minds to work on something, we will frequently be surprised what it brings forth! Wise comments from Dana, as well! Lovely! How refreshing to stir up many valuable thoughts about a hub! It's one of the things I most value about HubPages, in fact.

      So much wisdom and opening up fresh and new vistas ! You are right, hubpages is such a great learning experience. As for myself, each day, I learn something new and striking. As for finding solutions of riddles lurking in our minds, this is something everybody is perplexed about. Still, this is a journey one has to cover with one's own feet and insight. No fixed formula and a single panacea is in sight ! Perhaps the One Above wants it this way. He is a Great Examiner and His rules are equally applicable to all of us. Also interesting that He does't show answer sheets and no right to information in sight ! Lol....isn't it all very curious and so subtle ? Nellieanna, every time you visit my hub, you take me to the journey of deep inside. Perhaps it may be one of the designs of that Great Magician and Wonderful Juggler ! So amazed am I by this great wonder - this all pulsating existence ! Thank you very much.

      Excellently approached! You have certainly expressed this poem with the greatness of God and so often we feel left out or forgotten about. Your words are powerful and so beautifully put together. Voted up, and beautiful

      Devika, I'm so glad that you liked this poem this much. I, myself, am surprised how a simple description of kite flying connected to the Allmighty in the course of writing this poem ! Thank you very much for appreciating the poem and your wonderful comments.

      I can think that He wants us to explore and work out our questions. He's generously left ample clues lying around! In fact, one can't look around anywhere without noticing them. It's just a matter of whether or not we can feel and internalize them. Everything of value to be learned must be internalized. Perhaps new information first lingers in an internal consciousness 'sorting room' where it can be weighed and fitted in among other things before becoming internalized, but only then does it become a part of one's inner core and character.

      I take it this is about our lives from birth to death and how throughout our life we are under His watchful eye. Voted up and shared.

      Yes, it tells about human broom from birth till death. Smetimes I wonder how everything even if seemingly so trivial teaches us so much about life and existence ! The Creator is so patient and never ever interferes with our life and lets us to carry on using our own talents and wisdom. However when we are exhausted and are desperate for a way out, He comes as thought in our mind, as a glitter in our eyes, as a hope in our heart and as a dream in our sleep but comes for sure ! Kevin, Thanks for appreciating the poem , your kind comments and sharing.
