My students have recently surprised me with amazing performances and I as always made me their learner. This is to them!
To an Eternal Crest
Today has been worth centuries
Of learning and internalizing echoes:
Reaching heights of waves, actually touching
Epiphanies. At fingertips, they surge back
In, fluctuating a flush of turbulence
That nourishes the seas of thought and spirit.
Flattered, I take back a step in my waters
To thrust a glance deep into salty oceans
Of fresh blood boiling boastfully to a rim
That cannot limit passion from pouring on
To a universe of plentiful smiling

Kids can really bring out the best in you. I'm glad your students inspired you to write this. I recall the words of Lao Tzu:
And whichever teacher
Discounts the lesson
Is as far off the road as the other,
Whatever else he may know.
Thanks Les. I really do have a passion for all those surrounding me. It is capturing the moments of their true growth and seeing them walk on two solid feet that brings me a lot of happiness. They are graduating this year and I was really emotional about it!!!!
your words reveal what a true teacher should be--not only the educator--but always the educated........Ell
Thanks Igreen!! I do have a passion for what I do. It is not merely a job! Besides I will never cease to be a learner by will!
