Students in the halls
Lockers clang open and shut.

Almost Done (Senryu)

by Angela Umphers Rueger

Final exam week
Students pore over their notes
Time for the test

February 21, 2017


by scatterednotebooks

Awkward, accusatory and dooming,
Lie the letters, staring, glaring.
Painfully pointing fingers, from the fatal
Hand of society, chip away the self.

A Teacher’s Heart of Gold


A Teacher’s Heart of Gold

Glittering, alluring
The lamp to your future.

I am the brightest.

Loving you is nothing I lack.
