New chance,

To aspire,

New beginnings,

Brake monotony,

Unassuming light breeze,

Chirping of birds energise,

Morning freshness intoxicate,

Rising sun, hope personifier,

To re-live aspirations once again.

Dusk, to reminisce, retrospect, ponder.

In order, they gather, events of ,

the day, discussed, under canvas,

of entrancing twilight light,

One time before morrow,

Flock under worldwide,

keeper of time,

Setting sun,



Inspiration drawn from the Kites who perch atop the crane, unfailingly everyday, discussing the events of the day, before they retire for the night.
