The Playground Epiphany

Children on a playground that were strangers not more than twenty minutes
     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,

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


A parental observation.

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