Inquiry Poem

By Gabriel Chakmakchi

Why is it, when I’m in the car,

the moon is always  

following me?

How come

when I’m in a bath,

water sits on itself and

how does it do that?

How do clouds move and

why are they always moving?

What can be really good camouflage?

Is the Earth really just a giant meteor?

And how can you tell if a mushroom is poisonous or not?

And how does a tree always keep its balance?

And, if you are standing on a cloud, would you fall?

Gabriel Chakmakchi is a nine-year-old boy living in the San Francisco Bay Area. He went on his first family mindfulness retreat in 2015, where his dad took the Five Mindfulness Trainings. Gabriel likes gymnastics, dance, and baseball. He dictated this poem to his dad at age six.
