“the man who has no imagination has no wings.”
at the nature center for grandie v’s 6th birthday celebration
the scientist helps us to measure our wingspans
before we take a stroll outside to find this beautiful bird
rescued and healing a broken wing
whose wingspan we hope will return one day
and we are grateful to have our wings.
“happiness makes up for height for what it lacks in length.”
kinders offer their presentations
the other kinders
and to us
they are very excited
they tell us
they have studied.
one teaches us about
the colorful parrot.
another one asks
‘why do they fly?’
‘so they can see the world.’
in this moment
of clarity and understanding
traded places with us
become the teacher
we learn so much from her.
“feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?”
