Geometry of Kites


Tumbling, falling along the coastlines, held upon the fragility of breath

Where tension relieves the anxiety of destiny, until the moment of release

For then the light chants to the eternal gravity of asymmetry, that balance predicated upon the eternal symbol

Of geometric communications. 

For then, the doubts fade, as polarity creates the cause for the soul's elevation

From the kiss of the inventor begins the commitment to soar 

As the leap of faith transcends the fear of the voyage

Up into the complexity of Zipf's geometry

Of those tetrahedral blackbirds whose wings are yet to sail

Into the mystery of the elevated sanguinem that surely creates those soft ripples of light

Whose permission is to allow and forgive, with no other purpose than freedom

As mechanistic attractors of life and air might carry upon the breeze of construction

Amidst the mountain air, where the wind shall surely serve her great power

To the schoolboy's initial box kite design

Until seated, we rise

Through the historical perspectives of tradition and familiarity, into the close air of above

Whilst chasing the skyward trajectory of the pure line of conection, amused, as we are led by the element of air

For that fingertip point of connection is that of release, for to grasp is to inhibit

And the enigma is eternally elusive

Strangely, the Korean combat kites create a tension that illuminates the aggression that seemingly mankind cannot forget

Though to rise above the pains of mankind, upon a mankite, might possibly commence a reduction of those past failings

So, until the inevitability of purity manifests completely in this world again

We can play, we can fly our kites

As the subtle balance suspends our disbelief

And professionalism of the weather sciences is also reduced to play with the wind song of divination

The Tetrahedral Kite

In Euclidean geometry, a kite is a quadrilateral whose four sides can be grouped into two pairs of equal length sides that are adjacent to each other.

In contrast, a parallelogram also has two pairs of equal length sides, but they are opposite to each other rather than adjacent.

Kite quadrilaterals are named for the wind blown, flying kites, which often have this shape and which are in turn named for a bird.

Kites are also known as deltoids, but the word "deltoid" may also refer to a deltoid curve, an unrelated geometric object.

Ultimately a kite is an object of geometric beauty.
