Each Saturday Ruth Ayres invites us to share and celebrate events from our week. Looking for small celebrations has certainly improved my outlook on my life. For that, I am certainly grateful to Ruth and to all of you who choose to celebrate with us.
Now that the March Slice of Life Challenge is over, one would think that my weekly Saturday celebration is back to normal. But no - this month I have challenged myself to write a poem a day. So, my celebration this week is in the form of a poem. I am not a poet, I am a teacher, but I must write in order to teach.
Thank you to my fellow bloggers for letting me come along for the ride on this poetry adventure. It becomes a richer experience when you are writing, sharing, and learning together. For more poetry fun, check out these blogs from Linda, Margaret, Michelle, Julianne, and Cathy.
Today I am trying the technique called anaphora which according to Margaret Simon is the repetition of a word or a group of words at the beginning of successive phrases.
I Celebrate Spring
I celebrate the feel of sunny days, warming my face, my heart, my soul
I celebrate the explosion of magnolia buds, watching life burst open
I celebrate the sound of rain, knowing my world will be much greener tomorrow
I celebrate the laughter of my students, releasing their winter blues
I celebrate the birth of spring, awaiting to explore new life.
