School - the best time of the year

I really enjoyed my first blog hop/blogfest yesterday! I'm still going around to collect all my data like the nerdy little mathematician I am - I <3 #s! And if you were a little late, you will still be viewed and counted, don't worry!

Tomorrow I have something old and something new - but no borrowed or blue, I'm already married, thank you!

Today I have this week's Sensational Haiku Wednesday, with one of my favorite themes: School!


More than books and desks
Memories are created
Friends connect for life


A teacher conducts
the melody of knowledge
for students to sing


In the school of life
we learn from experience
students forever

As a teacher, I deeply appreciate your second haiku. I especially like to envision myself as a conductor of students singing! Thank you so much!

I was a teacher, and I absolutely adore your second haiku! The third one rings very true to me as well. Well done on all of them!

Thanks for visiting my blog, and I am SO stealing your BLT bite recipe'
Your Haiku's were very cool...G

Bubba said...

Nice haiku - I especially liked the last one!

Cathy said...

Love the haiku. Those are not easy to write, I seriously respect your talent.

AND ... great party! I had fun checking out all the blogs and the best part is no clean up and no extra sit-ups to counter act all that amazing food! Until I start making the recipes that is ;)

Lovely. I so don't get poetry, how to write it. Well, limericks I can do. I guess my brain is just prosy. =D

Heather M. Gardner said...

Well done.

I can't wait to get his kid back to school.


Laila Knight said...

I liked that. We are students forever, constantly learning and changing. :)

Alana said...

These are all really great. I'm especially drawn to the second haiku on teachers, I think the melody and sing are just perfect, but then I look at school and think "yes!!" and look at life and think "So true!!" and realize that really I love them all.

Well done. :)

Hey Tara. What great talent you have. Haiku are extremely difficult to write. Love the third one especially, but flows logically from the first two.

Hey fellow Bloggy McBLoggerson!

It's a pleasure to read your posts, Tara. I have to admit, I'm a little intimidated by your math teacher abilities, because I divorced math, but I give you all the respect in the world for being a woman both of numbers and of words!

Greetings, fellow campaigner!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Nice! I'd say you're a far better poet than me, but burnt toast could do a better job than me.

M Pax said...

What lovely haiku. it brings to mind so many memories. I used to miss going back to school. Not so much anymore. :)

Ria said...

I love the last one best! When we stop learning our brains start to die.

Tara Tyler said...

MMT, the profession should get more appreciation!

Dana, thanks! glad you're back =)

Gman, awesome! help yourself!

Bubba, great name & thanks!

Cathy, you're so sweet. the party needed more music and drinking, i think!

Donna, a pretty pocket full of prosey!

Heather, aww you're just sayin that =)

Laila, thanks! i just met a cute husky puppy named Laila.

Alana, you crack me up! glad you made it to the party!

Allie, thanks! and I followed you back =)

Rancer-the Ranceman!, math is nothing to be intimidated by, agents are!

Alex, toast is good, with butter? better, and then there's jam!

Mary, aww. thanks!

Ria, you know it!

it is a connection for life with friends for some with their teachers and with the knowledge they pass on!

Jenn @ Youknow...that Blog? said...

All three are terrific - what a great prompt for the teachers in our group, yes?! I think I love the second most.

Well done; thanks for joining us!

I really like your Haiku's this week, especially the teacher one. I had fun checking out the other blogfest blogs.

Very expressive haikus. Enjoyed them.

enjoyed all three ... the flow from students to teachers to life was a clever way to handle the prompt!
