We went outside for Nature Journaling again and their assignment was to compare the nice day to themselves.
I wrote a Cleave Poem
that contains two sides.  Each side can be read separately or they can cleave and be read together.

Today + Me

                                               A blue sky       A pretty sun
                                     and white clouds      a few frustrations
                                   through the limbs       through the filter
                                           of bare trees       of rose colored glasses

                                   A brook schussing       rap beat
                                  down the mountain       students in the hall
                             providing a symphony       background noises
                                     a fly on my paper       well-behaved kids

                                                   sunning       in the library
                                            green things       happy thoughts of retirement
                                   poking their noses       spiking in my mind
                                 through dead leaves       through ordinary moments
