Day Twelve: Along With Them

it was sunny, the wind was free
when I came on a group of kids at play
and overheard the wise group leader
say to another,
ain’t no person’s shadow big enough
to hide that sunny face.
but looky here,
use your thumb.
it’s nice, no?
to have the sun hidden with your thumb.
throw a thousand shadows at the sun
you’ll still fail,” I added silently.
but with some childlike glee
I raised up my thumb along
with them.

Fridays are always days when you let yourself have a little fun. Enjoy success in the little things and grin.
