Poetry Friday: Summer

Thanks to Heidi at Heidi at My Juicy Little Universe for hosting Poetry Friday.

It’s
here
Summer
vacation
Mornings on the deck
breathing, sipping tea, lingering
Red-winged blackbird at the feeder
Scent of star jasmine
in the air
Summer
starts
now

SOL17: End of School

Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for providing space for us each week to share our slice of life.

year forty-three ends
library books stand silent
we celebrate now
summer can begin today
and time shifts to a slow pace

I’d like to say the year flew by but it didn’t.  Snow days added time in June and lengthened out the school day.  Here we are though, last day of school.  Today we honor the fifth graders as they venture off to middle school.  Kindergarteners feel more confident than one hundred eighty days ago.   We’ll surprise the students with a flash mob and under the smiley face, I know there will be tears.

I missed the last day of school last year.  I didn’t realize what an important ritual it was until I was elsewhere.  So glad to be with a happy face today.

Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for providing space for our slices each week.

the crescent moon sets
to the mourning dove’s lament
low, lingering notes
twilight seeps into the room
as I heat water for tea

Poetry Friday: Two Eagles

poetryfriday

Thanks to Mary Lee at A Year of Reading for hosting Poetry Friday, a place for poetry to shine.

two
bald
eagles
morning flight
over the canyon
sunlight glinted off the rapids
I hiked the narrow, rocky path
many tears but he was
cancer free
fully
at
peace
