a trio of kinders, a ring of keys, a door to our classroom….
“optimism is the key.”
the kinders celebrate the return of the sun
with no coats and fast feet and smiles a mile wide.
“i’m youth, i’m joy, i’m a little bird that has broken out of the egg.”

the downward-facing up on the wall and on your head style
(includes the mysterious vanishing sheets technique)
the get inside of your sheets and try to camouflage yourself in them
while you creep across the floor and think no one will notice style
the fall asleep by accident in spite of yourself
and all of your best efforts to not to style,
while wrapped up in a sweaty and twisted cocoon
made of your own body and bedding.
“life is something to do when you can’t get to sleep.”
just chillin’ in the polar ice cave
when quite suddenly
from out of nowhere
makes a daring rescue
enters stage left.
“it’s more fun to experience things when you don’t know what’s going to happen.”

m organized the world according to the animals.
some live in the water, some with grass and trees, some with sand and stone, and some with snow and ice.
“science is organized knowledge. wisdom is organized life.”
after much trial and error and an ‘aha’ moment,
the kinders figured out what magnets do and found a place to put them.
“a teacher is a compass that activates the magnets of curiosity, knowledge, and wisdom in the pupils.”
“this color smells like love.”
“if i put this red piece of tape here it might keep all of this stuff from falling off my plate.”
“the good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge.”
