a sword at rest found among the garden
“i believe in everything until it’s disproved.
so i believe in fairies, the myths, dragons.
it all exists, even if it’s in your mind.
who’s to say that dreams and nightmares
aren’t as real as the here and now?”
― john lennon
the kinders made a wonderful house for rocket the turtle,
with many rooms and spaces,
including his very own garden and library.
“until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things,
man will not himself find peace.”
“the man who has no imagination has no wings.”
this crew has built their own airplane.
they are flying to australia.
it will take them “70 miles long” to get there.
i have no doubt they will arrive safely and on time.
“to invent an airplane is nothing. to build one is something. but to fly is everything.
sweet kinder spends her free choice time playing with the doll house.
when i stop over for a visit and ask why all the people are facing one way
she tells me they are waiting in line for the one bathroom.
(if you look closely, all the way to the right,
you’ll see the one toilet with someone sitting on it,
as well as a chef serving food out of a window,
and more people and animals scattered around downstairs)
what an amazing real world scenario.
how can i not love every single day of my job?
‘waiting in line is a great opportunity to meet people, daydream, or play.’
the grandies offered me a chance
to choose my superpower –
flight, strength, invisibility, speed, or shape shift?
i chose invisibilty
got inside of the machine
they powered it up
when i came out
they confirmed that i was now invisible.
except for my feet
which did not fit in the box.
i can live with that.
“the things that make us different, those are our superpowers.”
playing, creeping, tiptoeing
ghosts in the graveyard
scaring themselves to death
screaming, spooky, squealing, shrieking
so much fun.
“while it’s cool to think ghosts exist, i don’t want to see one.”
