open doors.

Standard

one kinder opens the door for another after making sure it is safe for him to go

the bittersweet feelings of being part of our multi-age class

most of the children don’t see themselves as being

different ages or stages

and may not yet see

that some will be moving on

to the higher grades

where they will have the chance to grow

in ways they have yet to imagine

and some will stay with us

for one more year

where they will have the chance

to be the leaders and teachers

to the new little ones joining our class

what we all know without any doubt

is that we are one

 we will always keep an open door for all of them

to safely come and go as they need

and as some leave and as some stay

our journeys continue another day.

“if I look back when I begin to leave, will they remember me?”

one day gerald mysteriously appeared

with a note and a friendly greeting

left by an unknown visitor

 and

he moved into

the fairy community at my cottage

i know they welcomed him

with open arms and open doors.

through a door you didn’t know you left open.”
