Slice of Life/Teachers Write: Feeling Strong.

SOLnew teachers write 2015

Friends.  It's been almost two months since I've linked up with Two Writing Teachers for Slice of Life!  I've missed you!  Hooray for time to write in the summer!


I've also been participating in Teachers Write this summer as well.  One of yesterdays' exercises is linked here:  http://www.katemessner.com/teachers-write-7-13-15-mini-lesson-monday-with-liz-garton-scanlon/


So I wrote a poem.  I think.  (Read:  I'm learning and stretching myself so much in Teacher's Write!)



The heart could have gone cold.
She realized she was getting old.

She knew she was strong. 
She set out to prove the naysayers wrong.

She ran and worked into the night.
She would then wake up the morning light.

It was hard, it was long.
She knew she was going to prove them wrong.
She remembered to have fun. 
They caught her dancing in the sun.

Then she realized she wasn't cold.  
She had learned life was something to behold.  

Joy!
Kendra

  2. Your poem is encouraging to one who's been having those thoughts!

  4. I purchased Kate Messner's book, 59 Reasons to Write, after hearing about it at a workshop this summer. Unfortunately, I have had so many different things going on that I haven't read much or gotten busy writing. Thanks for the reminder to keep writing.
