|Today I join my fellow bloggers in|
"serving up a slice" to the March SOLSC
sponsored by Two Writing Teachers.
Wednesday began with steady patter on the roof,
A roof that rarely registers the sound of raindrops,
Raindrops to inspire a needed morning post,
Posted before school because I'm frightened,
Frightened of this year's east coast midnight deadline!
A deadline that has me writing late at night,
Night writing to stay ahead of the game.
Game plan for today, to leave school at district training's end,
Ended when I found myself the lone library straggler
Struggling to schedule the requisite computer practice times,
and time was needed to answer a parent note,
and noting the time, I shortened the window.
A window allowing me to bake a cake for dinner,
A dinner for sisters of faith to celebrate and share,
Share a meal and exchange an act of service
Serving each other to grow our love.
Love that I received chicken pot pie for dinner tomorrow,
A tomorrow overfull (aren't they all?) of obligations,
Obligated to have school board visitors in our rooms,
A room that needs straightening for guests and Friday's sub,
Sub plans to write so I can escape to Friday's book club retreat,
A retreat with dear friends to share laughter, books, and love.
