when you go to the grocery
to get some ice
for your food
after a wild and windy rainstorm
knocked your power out
you pull out your bags of ice
only to find
a secret ice cream stash
placed there by a brilliant grocery worker
hidden for later
and your day is made.
“greater than the tread of mighty armies is an idea whose time has come.”
me – “can you tell about what you wrote?”
kinder – “look up at the top.
the brown part is the idea mark.
all the rest are the ideas.”
i thought this to be brilliant
and perhaps should be our newest form of punctuation.
move over semicolon; the idea mark is here to stay!
“words are but the signs of ideas.”
“i cling to the optimistic belief that the haphazard and the hopscotch,
the creature that sips among many flowers,
may actually come up with something…
hopscotch on sidewalk at postman’s rest park
ann arbor, mi usa
let the kids play and get a massage at the same time.
