the lost and found is lost.

Standard

today

when the kinders found things out of place

they went to put them in our class lost and found

but discovered it was missing. 

the class then set out to find the lost and found

that was lost

until someone found it

and proudly put it back in place

then the mini wooden zebra, the blue rubber spider, and the green magna-tile

found a place to wait until we can find where they belong.

“first up, the lost and found has gone missing.

it itself, is lost.

so please try not to lose anything until we find it.”

falling through the cracks.

Standard

had a great breakfast with family

who returned a file of family history papers

that had traveled on a journey with them

across the seas

 i was happy to see them again

 had the papers in my hand for all of 1 minute

 as i set them down next to me

for safekeeping

they fell into a hidden crack

 just kept going deeper into the abyss

until they were gone

a very kind manager

without judgement

without questions

with a good sense of humor

offered to assist

by moving chairs

pulling the whole table out

taking the booth apart

and retrieving the precious files

intact and none the worse for wear

the family journey continues

with just a short detour.

“cracks especially. you have to be careful of the cracks.

sometimes they are disguised as something else.

a doorway, or a smile or even a winking eye.

and if you fall through them, you never know were you will end up.”
