Roots, or: Wings

My 1st Lai

She has a playdate
with her new classmate
today.
Her excitement's great;
the skip in her gait
conveys
her overjoyed state.
Adventures await - 
Hooray!

Their teacher is wise
and good sense applies
in class.
Seating plan devised,
sixty anxious eyes, 
en masse,
up to hers did rise,
but her poise defies
all sass.

Many were upset
over teacher's bet,
for sure.
But kids fast forget;
trusting tone was set
and more.
'Twas thus the girls met;
they'd not spoken yet...
before.

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!
