Geometry of Kites
GEOMETRIC DANCING 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.
