Jill Badonsky has us write poems during her Body Blissmas teleconferences.
Here's the poem I wrote last week.


Today was a day
of one of my last cups of coffee
of rushing to wait an hour
then rushing again to get home to check on
my handyman's work on my kitchen

Today was a day of happiness
A day of being with English Learners again
A day of meeting nice people
A bilingual principal
A Japanese shop teacher
An American who, like me, subs and is writing a book
(who also speaks Spanish)

Today was a day of remembering
And missing my English Learners

Today was a day of finding Peace
