Kite Waiting #WordlessWednesday

As day was breaking,

I stood outside in my balcony

Waiting for the milk to boil.

I suddenly spied this kite waiting

Who turned his head and stared at me.

He looked me up and looked me down

and turned away and stared ahead.

Then before I knew,

He clapped his wings and

Quickly flew .


Linking up with Esha’s #WordlessWednesday.

These birds of prey, the common kite are actually scavengers and ugly as they are essential to Mumbai’s #SwacchBharat campaign ( in a manner of speaking).


A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!

    Lucky you snapped it up! I have seen a couple but they just fly off while I just fumble! Hope you get this comment of mine!

      Yes Dahlia I did get this comment and while I am on the same device ( my lap top I thought I’d acknowledge it. Indeed I was lucky. I couldn’t get the bird flying in motion. That would have been spectacular. Getting the bird in focus, getting your specs on and clicking the right ‘button’ is quite a task.
