Today’s inspiration is from Mo Daley and Tracie McCormick, who have challenged my writing group to write a Ghazal – 5 to 15 couplets, refrains of 1-3 words in the second line of each couplet, with the word prior to the refrain the rhyme scheme word. And today, I go back on contract – – back to work! I’m looking forward to our Literacy grant and all of the possibilities for our students.
I’m Going Back!
since March 13th, we’ve stayed home: Covid 19
four months and one week later – today – I’m going back!
today begins a new chapter: 2020
new challenges and opportunities I seek – I’m going back!
we’ll mask up and sanitize all the way to ‘21
cautiously distance and crowdsurvey peek – I’m going back!
will outings be safer in 2022?
surely by then we’ll be past the peak – I’m going back!
my 5-year grant term will close in ‘23
I stand boldly with literacy, cheek to cheek – I’m going back!
