The Secret

The Secret

Minimalistic beings of who
indigenous people do plain understand:
--Minnie Shabalala.

The huge ceramic & colored rock 
abstract wall structure surrounding
the playground, pocked with portholes,

inlaid with bright tiles, is very aware
that from every portal, some child
or other can gleefully discover

the verdant secret garden.

You wrapped up your amazing effort with a poem to sum up today's theme: It is all about revealing the secret garden to the children.
Many thanks for your enthusiastic response to the challenge, Glenn.
