'I WISH I WERE A KITE', at BURGHLEY SCULPTURE GARDEN


'I WISH I WERE A KITE' 
STATEMENT

Rooted into the soil crawling up the sky
I can only reach so far
the wind blowing, pushing, moulding.
Drown in rain engulfed by air
flying high then sinking low at the mercy of the flow.
I wish I were a kite
to trick myself into freedom.
Trees, flowers, grass and a plastic bag
Another link to the chain, tying the air to the ground
I wish I were a kite

just be
part of the relentless stream:
Nature

and surrender to mine

Another obstacle to seize fate.
