A new week beginning.
I have a job that I love.
I have a job
while many do not.
Tyler interrupting yet again.
Class disrupted once again.
Always joking, a natural comedian.
Does he know how funny he is?
Dawson suddenly telling me he loves spaghetti.
The kindest blue eyes in school.
In the thick of Thursday now.
Another busy week flying by in a wink.
Students dropping by for a quick chat,
asking how I’m doing.
Do they know
how much their kindness matters?
Students listening during my entire lecture.
My self-defined ‘bad’ class –
Only they’re not.
They are the future.
A day of chores and catching up to self.
So much in store.
A hot bath waiting patiently.
Sunday sneaking up.
The weekend nearly done.
Why the haste? The day not for waste.
Time to reconnect. The rest can wait…
The present offering
its gift of now.
