First Day At School - # 18


Pretentious
Sublime and expectant
Walks she, into
Kindergarten
Head held high
Mommy’s - words
Braving in strangeness
Smiling in confidence
Embracing the learning
First day at

School

At day first
Learning the embracing
Confidence in smiling
Strangeness in braving
Words - mommy's
High held head
Kindergarten -
Into, she walks
Expectant and Sublime
Pretentious.

PS: And now our (as always, optional) prompt! Today’s prompt comes to us from Cathy Evans, who challenges us to write a poem that begins and ends with the same word. You could try for something in media res, that begins and ends with “and,” for example. Or maybe “if.” Or perhaps you could really challenge yourself and begin/end your poem with a six-dollar word like “antidisestablishmentarianism.” (Just kidding!) Whatever word you choose, I hope you have fun with it!
