the 3-year olds know what’s going on.
grandie creates his quilt
stitching fabrics of his choosing

waiting for some play
as the sled stands outside
with hopes of snowy day.
“the class of your performance is built on the grade of your skills.”

what an elementary teacher
after-school book meeting looks like
all full of colors, sparkling water, and clever words.
“books are uniquely portable magic.”
– stephen king

for the rhino with the broken foot
so that he has a place to lie down
and recover in peace.

it is above all by the imagination
that we achieve perception, and compassion, and hope.”
