Do you remember that TV show Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings? Where Simon would draw on his bedroom chalk board and when done, he would climb his special ladder, look over the fence into The Land of Chalk Drawings, and see what impact his drawing had on their world?
When I look at chalk drawings, I wonder beyond my world into imaginary lands too. I was drawn into the driveway designs created just outside my front door this Easter evening by my daughter, niece,and nephew.
It’s a blue sky, tire-swinging kind of day in driveway world. Apples hang on the boughs of a giant tree that this little cosmos is centered upon. It’s a world where beehives buzz and butterflies brighten the day. That’s a blue dinosaur under the beehive by the way. Of course.
Roots grow deep and strong into the grassy green hillside. A lone flower in full bloom stands at the foot of the hill. What animals might be scurrying just inside the tree trunk door?
Twilight falls, and all that is left of the chunky green chalk lays in dust upon her hands.
