Keep it simple

keep it simple,
a song to sing along to
or at least to hear
to feel
inside heart
inside house
or outside
on trail, path

don’t look
too far beyond
what’s on path
in front of you
above you
around you
falling from the sky
hanging from the trees
flitting on feathered wings
from branch to branch

keep it simple
not everyone appreciates
being taken out
on a kite string
and flown high above

heights can be deceiving
distorting the world

bring down that kite,
keep it simple
a song to sing along to
or at least to follow
to hear
in your heart
