Hide and Seek (Who plays it best?)

Hide and Seek (Who plays it the best?)

The wind when it’s still,
spring in December,
the Moon when it’s new,
dew under the sun,
stars when it’s raining,
the shadow of a flame,
the tide when its low
the sun at night time.

Pedal Park

July 30, 2018

Have you ever seen a collection of vintage pedal cars at an antiques mall, or on a youtube video? Aren’t they wonderful?

What about a park for them, a Pedal Park?

My suggestion is that someone set up a landscaped park with a maze of mini roads throughout, that allows pedal cars to go from a starting point, meander through a maze of mini roads, and end up back where they started.

The road would be one way, but there would be a place or two where the cars would have to come to a stop and allow cross traffic to pass.

The child and parents would start at the parking ‘garage’ where you could rent for your child, the pedal car of his/her choice. They would be lined up, each in their own pint sized parking space.

There should be all kinds of styles of pedal cars: cars, trucks, service vehicles, the works. Everything from a fancy luxury car, to fire engines. It would be best if no two were alike!

The customer would rent a car for one trip through the park from start to finish.

There would also be pit stops along the way where parents could sit at a bench and watch, or trails along the road where they could walk close behind their kids. There also should be a refreshment stand for snacks.

What do you think of Pedal Park?

Seven Poems About Animals

A bee in the cathedral?
Get him out!
No one wants him there
but God!

the flower
seems to know
what to do!

from my door
high in the tree
I see a straw nest
my nearest neighbor.

can this mouse
help the lion?

busy people
pass them by,
but grandfather and child
love the birds.

I love to watch you dragonfly
when you’re hovering …
over there …
and not too close!

I kicked a stone
over the cliff.
A startled bird
rose up in it’s place!
