Flash poetry: Right Now

A long day of work
Students from morning ’til night
Green against gray skies

I love my students
They are smart and fresh and strong
White flashes of light

My life is enriched
Through this “enrichment” I give
The mourning dove coos

How did this happen?
This unplanned, but happy life?
Sweet like gardenias

Gratitude fills me
The gift of life so fragile
Far off a dog barks

    Beautiful words from a beautiful lady. I can still see your smile while in Austin.

    What a refreshing end -of-day reflection
    Pat is right about your smile…
    it lingers!
