Back to school soon


Fall colours (c) Clr ’14

One can have mixed feelings at the end of summer. Ending the greens and floral colour, yet beginning the warm rich amber and gold colours of the changing leaves. The flowers slowly lower their heads until they fall but the sunflower stands tall until the first snowfall here. The trees lose their gold and reds but a few stand strong as the old oak does.

Back to school around the corner…some have even started in other parts of the world.

Summers give
sweet reprieve
last year’s intimidation
feeling powerless
on most days
fear now,
returning to
more humiliation
unless prowess
patience and endurance
lead the way

use your words
the mind is strongest
fists and feet
just cause defeat
lowering oneself
to uncivilized times
words can hurt
so beware
use your words
heed your heart
will lead the ways
to  better days.

A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!
