TEACHER (to Dad with Love)
by Marie Elena
“But how do you thank someone who has taken you from crayons to perfume?” (Don Black’s To Sir with Love)
Students from yesteryear gather to honor him.
I see the pride well and spill.
Not arrogance or superiority, but a grounded wonder
As he processes the ripples initiated
By his long-passed presence in their lives.
