tohubohu.

Standard

today, someone decided

to quietly dump every single puzzle out onto the floor

mix the pieces together

then head up to the loft to play.

it was left in a perfect state of tobubohu

but somehow i couldn’t think of that word

at the moment of discovery

 tomorrow we will work on it together

and with it will come a new word.

toh-hoo-BOH-hoo

part of speech: noun

origin: hebrew, unknown

1. a state of chaos, utter confusion

examples in a sentence:

“The mayor’s unexpected announcement left the press in a tohubohu.”

“After recess the students were always in a tohubohu.”

anyone else ever achieve this perfect state?

messy.

Standard

once the rain came

and the temperature rose by 50 degrees

and the snow and ice turned

to slush, and mud, and dirty water

and the discovery of this

brought such a level of joy and celebration

to the sandbox

that it was immeasurable. 

“childhood is messy and beautiful.”
