what i saw
as i arrived at school
for parent teacher conferences
at the beginning of the day.
also what i saw
as i left school
after parent teacher conferences
at the end of the same day.
a day always passes
no matter how busy or how calm
no matter what we have done or not done
somehow slipping by.
‘the long day wanes; the slow moon climbs the deep.’
-alfred lord tennyson
kinders watch closely as the sand slips away.
‘the sand in the hourglass runs from one compartment to the other,
marking the passage of moments with something constant and tangible.
if you watch the flowing sand,
you might see time itself riding the granules.
contrary to popular opinion,
time is not an old white-haired man,
but a laughing child.
and time sings.’
