After School Haiku

We have a garden in the front of our school. It is in memory of a student who died tragically when he was in second grade. I walk through the garden almot every afternoon when I leave school.
Yesterday, grasshoppers were hopping around my feet. This came to mind as I drove home.

    What a beautiful memorial to a lost student. So much more than a single tree or dedication boulder.

    You really bring the grasshoppers to life here! The memorial garden is a lovely tribute to the student.
