Lunch Over

The Children sit in the mud
Digging in their world

Of infinite possibility and

Unbounded imagination

Shoots become lanterns

Ready to glow in the dark

Lighting the way for Gnomies

Who only come out at night

Sunlight slants through the trees

The birds warble on

As the children chatter and

A plane rumbles by overhead
