poem-trying September 10, 2017

That light in your eye

gives me hope.  The glint of

possibility twinkles there.

I am excited by the symphony

you’re embracing as you

attempt novelty.

I see your fear

that your words are inadequate,

that what you offer is not

good not

enough not

good enough.

But your words are.

Have faith that when you climb to the heights

when you are brave enough to free your words

that I am holding the ladder steady

so you won’t fall.



(A teacher poem)
