TODAY: Word Up Submission


Originally uploaded by teachergal

One Little Word is a great blog that pushes its readers to focus on the meaning of one word for them. I’ve been pondering the latest “Word Up” Call for Submissions, which is centered around the word “Today.” This morning, as I was getting ready, I pushed myself to write a poem using the word ‘today’ as the focus.

This is the poem (and the layout I came up with):

and everyday,
as I get ready for work,
I remind myself that
have the power
to make today
a good one
or a bad one
for each of the twenty children
I’m blessed to teach.

and everyday,
I choose to make it
the best
it can possibly be.
