A Kid at Heart

At what point
Do we 
Stop enjoying
Eying with wonder
A seed split open
A shoot rising
Out of the earth
Or fungus
Springing out of
Recycled coffee grounds?

At what point
Do we become
So sophisticated
That nothing amazes
Makes us blink in surprise

At what point
Are we no longer allowed
To be silly?

I hope I never reach that point.

The mushrooms come from Back to the Roots and are a fun and worthwhile project for all ages. Yummy too!
