facts.

Standard

joyful young scientist

teaching and demonstrating

for even younger scientists

ends his hands-on physics and chemistry lessons

with a show-stopper

a fog-shooting cannon

crafted from a garbage can

and the crowd realizes how much they love science

and simply cannot get enough. 

“facts are to the mind what food is to the body.”

other worlds.

Standard

while watching the little league game

i caught a glimmer of shiny blue movement

out of the corner of my eye

 and suddenly there appeared

a shimmery mermaid

all scales and tails

coming from far away

skipping onto the field

staying safe in the background

to see just what

this other world was all about

and in an instant

she was skipping off again

returning to the safe world she knew

in the great bathtub sea

“it’s fun to peek into other people’s worlds

and see how they go about doing things.”
