Project 27 – New

A New Poem (Literally – NEW!)

Hi all,

Been a few days, December has been crazy around here! Managed to sneak some time in for writing tonight, hope you enjoy this new Project 27 Poem – New.


The morning rush
suddenly stops as you enter
The stares come quick and heavy.
Frowns and quizzical looks abound

Oh, no. Was that today? It was, it is.
New student today.
There’s a flurry of hustle and bustle and nerves
Will they fit in?

Will they merely observe, content to just grin
faking it all throughout a long day?
The scramble for journals and folders and papers continues
Oh, and could we scrounge up a chair?

But somehow your smile just sticks there
Happy for school, happy for class
Ready to learn,
Even if the teacher might have deleted
One too many emails.

As usual I’m still trying hard to find time to write! C&C always appreciated!
