everything.

Standard

kinders find tiny ants, roly-poly’s, and baby spiders

when playing on the sidewalk

and decide to create a playground for them

using all of their pretty chalks. 

“everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”

rough road.

Standard

the kinders begin the process of digging out their cars

and clearing the road after the storm.

 

“it is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness.”

the math of trees.

Standard

when looking at the trees on the kinder playground

it’s easy to see how tall the little people are 

the green does not dare begin until it is

above and safely out of the reach of their tiny hands

even if they are standing on tippy toes

 pulling, climbing, bending, picking, snapping

the trees do the math and live to tell the tale.

“trees and plants always look like the people they live with, somehow.”

-zora neale hurston

interlocking.

the boards

fall down

rebuilding as they go.

mutual interest, interlocking contributions, and simple joy.”
