big enthusiasm.

Standard

FullSizeRender-5 (1)it just isn’t a long weekend

until you break out 

your giant inflatable beer bottle 

to float down the river on.

it amazing to watch

as the lightbulb goes on

and

the transformation begins

when

those who have long names

quickly learn 

to adopt 

a shorter nickname

that they suddenly really love

(but only when written down)

once they have to 

go through the process 

of writing it all out.

sebastian becomes ‘seb’

elizabeth becomes ‘liz’

anniston becomes ‘ana’

christian becomes ‘chris’

and then

there is always

the one

who gets caught up in the spirit of things

and

 jumps on

the shortcut bandwagon

just because

like when

kim becomes ‘km’.

sometimes can be two different things.”

in my little front yard

mama and papa rabbit

stand guard

ever watchful

waiting for babies

to hop out of the nest

and

head out into the world

all on their own 

excited

full of curiosity

and

fresh ideas.

“ideas are like rabbits.

you get a couple and learn how to handle them,

and pretty soon you have a dozen.

bus.

Standard

as another school year

draws to a close

my time on the bus

is almost over

and

i think

i’ll miss

all the action:

who sits with who

who lost their coat

who forgot their bag

who needs a band-aid

who has the wrong bag

who sat by the window last

who didn’t bring their boots

who has trouble sitting at all

who was supposed to stay at school

who is crying, laughing, squealing, bouncing?

it might be me.
