when it’s out of light,
I hold them*, close and tight,
until they finally sleep in my sight.
Despite their fuss and fight,
despite my flaws and fright,
or my lack of might.
My tiredness and overwhelmedness seems alright,
I breathe and fall asleep in delight.

The Kite Festival makes me remember my childhood song “Playing Kites.”
Composer: Madong Lubis
I take a single stick of bamboo,
Then I cut it equally into two,
I shape that bamboo sticks, weigh them with a thread and tie them,
I make them a kite.
I’m playing a kite,
I’m running while bringing the kite to the open field,
My heart is happy and joyful.
Hopefully, you enjoy the kites too. Okay, Friends, where ever you are, I wish for you a great day.
