Just a Poem!

I have other things to post, but I am dedicating today to just a poem.

PAD, Day 4 - Something unexpected.

The Auditorium

Students file in
For morning chapel
Chit chat thunders
With gossip idle

Blather and dross
Laughter and joking
Finding seats
Squeals from poking

Late bell rings
Ears are numb
As keynote speaker
Takes podium

He waits to see
If talking stops
When it does not
A book he drops

It echoes through
The microphone
All are silent
On him they hone

"Awkward!"

That was really awesome. I love it. A good visual poem. I love the new look of your blog too. Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving...definitely a favorite in our house. You're so creative! Have a happy and fun filled weekend! :)

I feel like I need to take a few deep breaths before all the bustle starts. You are busy.

The slumber party sounds fun. I'll think on it.

Between Thanksgiving & New Year's is always our worst weather, so I also have to make sure we're provisioned for days of not being able to get out.

I would've loved it without the final word, but with the final word, it's priceless!
