after finding a tiny baby mole
who has died
along the side of the road
the kids say a few words on its behalf
and place it in the soft leaves of the woods
as a kind and gentle memorial gesture.

loved visiting the grandies
and their friends from the neighborhood
at their very own garage sale for kids.
they made signs
waved to cars
took turns being the dj in the garage
keeping the music going
and offering specials
(like the ‘wear two things on your head and get one free discount’)
every few minutes.
reminds me of me when i was a kid
though I usually ended up spending my profits
buying my friends’ stuff
and they often did the same with mine.
sometimes I even ended up
with more stuff than I had started with.
a pretty fun time for all
and some things are timeless.
I remember going with my mom
to a random garage sale as a kid and thinking
what a cool treasure hunt that the whole world was.
only to transition as an adult to think,
‘what a gross place that really is.’

to watch grandie j
and his team
just at the beginning
of learning skills and strategies
but they all try really hard
accept each other just as they are
and have such a light-hearted team spirit.
“with an enthusiastic team you can achieve almost anything.”
kinder take a closer look at the wooly sheep’s children
before they come over
to feel the human childrens’ gentle touch.
“any glimpse into the life of an animal quickens our own
and makes it so much the larger and better in every way.”

playing with light and color
creating a new vision.
“light, that first phenomenon of the world,
reveals to us the spirit and living soul of this world through color.”
