The Playground Epiphany

Children on a playground that were strangers not more than twenty minutes
ago,
     are playing and laughing together;
          falling into a natural rhythm of fun;
               breaking out into spontaneous games of tag and kick ball;
                    creating on-the-spot adventures—fueled by imagination...

Kids come and go,
     like bees and butterflies in a garden;
          like rambunctious little clouds traversing a deep blue sky.

All are welcome.
     None are turned away.

All are different,
     in color, size, ability,
          yet somehow all the same.

Order and organization reveal themselves,
     naturally.
          Organically.
               Easily.

This is a true social network,
     at least
          until it's time
               to go home.

 
About

A parental observation.

If only this applied to the adults...the world would be a better place.
