(Festival Internacional de Jardins 2016, Ponte de Lima)
“What we know is a drop, what we don’t know is an ocean.”
We know how to jump over a sprinkler,
and we are at least Olympic standard at swingball.
We know which kitten is our favourite
and we know that her name is Midnight Storm.
We know how to go down an
EXTREMELY TALL SLIDE.
We know that forest fires blacken the sky,
and make rings of flame in the night.
We know how to play outdoor chess at the garden festival.
We know that this praying mantis loves our lime green chair
because he’s been sitting on it for days.
And we know that we are finally brave enough
to jump off the jetty and into the river!
