Gratitude and Hopes of an American Public School Teacher in the Year of Our Lord 2020

Digital textbook
with interactive lessons
had students engaged
and this teacher saved
and high from the
unprecedented focus
of her students.

She wonders if it’s
the lesson, or maybe
how she presented it?
Or, maybe it’s the
beginnings of the
effects of a nation that
has just been relieved?

Feeling a bit foolish,
she does hope it’s
the latter, and that it
lingers and morphs
into a new day of
favor to all and
the demise of ego.

There are other
possibilities and
combinations of
factors colliding to
create this day of bliss.
But, she’ll keep praying,
hoping for the latter.

During the month of November, I will be joining Teach Write in the #Gratiku challenge, in which we write and share a gratitude haiku (or other poemish piece) every day in November. I may not write every day, but I will certainly try my best.

If you’re a teacher of writers (or a writer… don’t have to be a teacher) and you’re looking for a supportive group of other writers to encourage you along your writing journey, check out Teach Write.
