Connections: July 11.17

When July comes out to play,

bouncing on trampoline leaf,

climbing monkey bar stems,

sliding down the smooth

shiny pepper,

cartwheeling,

hopscotching,

hide-and-seeking in

herb tunnels,

and no one knows

how green the world can be

until the hot light leap-frogs

over itself

and we wish we could snatch it

this limpid summer air

but

unpossessable

it mocks

catch me if you can!

like childhood,

then does the garden dapple

make us stop

to fetch a memory.

Connections: January 28

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAGrandma says we need fresh air!

It’s time to climb and jog!

Grandma seems a wee bit daft;

we think she’s slipped a cog.

It’s quite all right

to say OUTSIDE!

when there’s no ice floe

 on the slide,

but today it’s frozen

like our digits —

really, Grandma,

there are limits!
