This is more of a note to self but I suppose there are others in this world who need these words too.
Left over Valentine’s hearts?
It was an idea from the start!
Teacher said green, blue, yellow or brown
The students painted with black, purple scribbles and lines
Would the tree turn out fine?
What would other teachers say?
But the children, not once did I hear is this is ok?
There were moments of look at my work.
Friendships were mended.
Quiet voices transcended.
It was like a spanish word and its accent
How does one make a masterpiece?
Tune out the noise.
Place with posie
Serves me right, well
For the chilren, I mean artists, are the swellest of the swell.
They know that a Valentine is a leaf with heart.
