I must share this because it was so thoughtful:
her poetry class
Chris is our teacher
Chris is beautiful
Chris is precise and spiraled
as an ocean vortex
Chris is a captain steering
my life in a fresh direction
Chris is a woman with feathers
Chris is insightful with proper direction
Chris is our mother
brilliance like the earliest worms
Chris is the laugh that curls
out from the heart
Chris is the face that launches
poets off creative cliffs
Chris is the lady who makes you stay
up till midnight on a school night
looking for a better word.
Do I have the most fabulous people in my classes or what? Thanks to: Leo Horrigan, Michael Kelly, Rachel Lucke, Cliff Lynn, Eugenie Nable, Lisa Orenstein, Aimee Pohl, Kathy Spath, Shara Terjung, and Nicole Walton.
