Carpe Diem #156, Tako (kite)

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Today a short episode of Carpe Diem, because of lack of time. Today we share haiku on Tako (kite). I think everyone knows what a kite is and that in ancient times the people thought that the good reach the gods by kite flying. So in many cultures there are several forms of kites, but in China and Japan the Dragonkites were very popular. So I love to share a haiku about Dragonkites.
