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.

An amazing insight into the feeling a teacher has when they see their seeds grow!!! I really like it, Marie.

I had no idea you had written this for your dad. That makes us much more special.
Thanks Sheryl! Your photo is just terrific!
