Kindergarten Recess

A tiny elephant stampede
all for the golden ring of an empty swing.

    Who will miss out? More than one, I'm sure! Kids don't take disappointment well, I'm afraid. God bless all the tiny elephants! Best wishes, Keith

    Some always seem to miss that empty swing.

    Hello Kathy - You write this so well. You give this simple childhood act a strong presence.

    Thanks Gail. Sorry it took so long to respond to your comment. I'm still not sure if anyone comes back to read them. I'll learn I'm sure.

    Now here is a really cute one that I somehow never saw. Hope you didn't throw up too much on my gross poem. the word nitpicker got me going on those limericks. have you been inspired by any contests lately? I think I will just be enjoying having hubbie home for the weekend before he goes right back out to drive monday. See ya later. Andrea

    I can see the mad rush to the pendulums of joy. And the pouts on faces of the elephants too slow to get there first. Life's lessons are learned so young and, sometimes, more on the playground than in the classroom. A nice simple write that says so much.
