kinder are on the lookout
don’t sneak back in
to spread all the green
throughout our room again
but somehow they still got in
and worked their merry mischief.
“be on the lookout for the presence of wonder”
tools and toys and trucks wait in winter
for the children to return
to see what new ideas
they can create together come spring.
“never worry for the delay in success compared to the others.
because the construction of wonders takes more time than other buildings.”
what a charming little cottage
i never stop smiling
in moments spent wandering through a toy store
such a lucky find –
a good humor man golden book
and what better hosts to greet us?
“i have a lot of growing up to do. i realized that the other day inside my fort.”

Truly, we live with mysteries too marvelous
to be understood.
How grass can be nourishing in the
mouths of the lambs.
How rivers and stones are forever
in allegiance with gravity
while we ourselves dream of rising.
How two hands touch and the bonds
will never be broken.
How people come, from delight or the
scars of damage,
to the comfort of a poem.
Let me keep my distance, always, from those
who think they have the answers.
Let me keep company always with those who say
“Look!” and laugh in astonishment,
and bow their heads.”
― Mary Oliver, Evidence: Poems
on a rainy walk
covered with shining confetti
only thing I know
is that it was
‘’I’m all about possibilities and about surprises and the life force.”
when walking downtown
this just sitting on a corner
no palm trees to be found
if you are missing your coconut
did you leave it behind
did you lose it
and not notice?
“in the garden of gentle sanity, may you be bombarded by coconuts of wakefulness.”
be filled with wonder,
be touched by peace.

what to do if there is no snowplow to be found?
where there’s a will….
a kinder will find a solution.
“wonder is the starter kit for innovation”
