to say hi
to the grandies and friends
I was lucky enough to enjoy
their indoor flying and blow-up forts created with fans.
life is good at the end of summer.
“the end-of-summer winds make people restless.”
I’ve moved into my new home
I’m going to call it
la casita pacifica
(the tiny peaceful house)
near the river, the flowers, the woods, the town, the family
“i’m really quite simple. i plant flowers and watch them grow…
I stay at home and watch the river flow.”
you know that feeling
when you fall down
on the trampoline
and keep trying to get up
but everyone keeps jumping
and you keep bouncing
and then all of you
and keep belly-laughing
and cannot stop?
“life has its ups and downs, but you can only look forward.”
grandie j welcomes the summer rain
on a hot day in detroit
‘like a welcome summer rain,
humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth, the air and you.”
– langstpn hughes
when you go to the carnival
and have finally grown enough
the spectacular rides level
that is winning.
“the determination to win is the better part of winning.”
field day with the grandies
water, sweat, smiles, scrapes, popsicles
and absolute fun, all of it.
“life is too short to not have fun;
we are only here for a short time compared to the sun and the moon and all that.”
