this is mama.

Standard

dropped off the family entries

to the library’s annual lego building contest

there were so many good ones to see

 elaborate, creative, funny, scary, lovely, colorful, detailed

some were quickly assembled

some took many hours and days to create

some made by children, some by adults,

some made by both working together

but it was the one above that really caught my eye

it was beautiful because

it was clearly made by someone

out of pure love

created by ivy, a preschooler

 her piece’s title

written by someone

who knew how to write their letters

simply read:

‘this is mama.’

 it was magnificent.

and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.”

i love her final gesture

and it made me give pause –

if i were to go today

i would leave behind the following things for others to enjoy:

$7.oo, a sock monkey, photographs, glitter, collage projects, letters and books.

i hope there is no fighting over the monkey.

always welcome.

Standard

the ponies and friends all came out for the dance party

this time is was a love fest and tea

everyone was welcome

all colors, sizes, shapes and species 

they were in their finest fancy fashions

and ready to have fun.

one pony told them she didn’t want to come

because it looked like a boring party

they were kind of sad but then they thought

maybe some other ponies had been mean to her once

and she was just acting that way

because she didn’t want to get her feelings hurt again

so they invited her back and showed her how to be nice.

“kindness is always fashionable, and always welcome.”
