Inspiration from Space


I wasn't going to post today...
   my words feel stuck inside my head.
They are rattling around in there, but
   resist every attempt to be

gathered
corralled
organized
or even seen.

Hiding in the shadows, they jeer at me.
Occasionally jumping out and shouting
   a word
   a phrase
 but disappearing before they can be ensnared.

Yet I had to share this.... and I hope that your own words can swirl and flow like the clouds beneath Commander Hadfield as he sings "Space Oddity" from the ISS, shortly before his return to Earth yesterday.

May it help to inspire us to see One World - United.
May it inspire you, your students, and the whole Earth to pursue exploration.
May it inspire us to see our world as beautiful, and fragile, and glorious.

Enjoy!








I'm participating in the Slice of Life Challenge, hosted by the amazing educators at Two Writing Teachers. Now that March is over, we write and share on Tuesdays. Stop by to see what others are posting!

Also - if you stop by and comment, and you are also slicing - PLEASE feel free to include your URL in the comments. With over 200 people slicing, it is often hard to go find your specific link on the Two Writing Teachers page, and I'd love to come read YOUR slice too!
