The accompanying verse was written based on material found on the Revolution web site, under Company, History. The link on that page to Kitelife's interview was also used as source material. The title of the poem comes from my B Pro Suite.

The design of my B Pro Suite, with Bazzer's help, led me to musing and the creating of the history poem as posted above.

I then worked on a 'stacked' poem with the second 'kite' dealing specifically with what I was trying to achieve with, and what I see when I fly my B Pro Suite.

Both of these poems have a hidden element that leads one to understanding The Signature history of the Revolution and also how I look at the Revolution kite.

Revolution has only done a few Signature kites, both are referenced and noted in the first poem, if you read the leading edges of the poems you will find the hidden element referenced above.

The 'stack' poem includes the history 'kite' as mentioned above and in the second 'kite' or stanza is noted what I think of the Revolution kite and its place in the world of kiting.

If you are interested in how the title of the poem relates to my B Pro Suite read this.
