Back to School


Once Upon a Time

you had your very first day of school.

Remember

buying the school supplies~

the new pencils, crayons, rulers, notebooks,

all fresh and new?

This was my favorite time of the school year.

I loved experiencing it again with my now grown up kids,

when I shopped with them.

The best part was

when you got home from the store

and looked at all of your purchases.

Starting new...

and then school starts.

What brought you great pleasure

now takes on a whole new role~

the notebooks become homework,

the pencil tips become dull,

the crayons crack,~

the once new becomes old,
