These children

enlarged beyond their years

mundane depictions  of their ordinary days

School uniforms,

smudged dirt from the day’s play,

tousled hair from fun’s movement

 

The artist

has zoomed in on this community,

magnified their lives,

with detail amplifying their reality

 

The highway’s travellers

stop, emerge from their vehicles

and gaze with wonder

at the skill to scale

human dimensions

to the heights of grain silos

and yet maintain

their authenticity
