missing in action

these days, regrettably,

I haven’t been writing as much

poetry as I’d perhaps like to

because I’ve been writing

lesson plans and letters and

feedback and other things that

need thought and time and penmanship

to make learning happen.

so yes, it’s true, there isn’t a lot of

poetry happening these days

but perhaps other kinds of art

that are just as much work, hard work

are just as curious about people

and that would be too corny

to write about poetically here

but that are essential

in my happy, happy life!
