“Teaching is Sometimes…” – Original Love Poetry

Sample Poem in “Teachers Students & Education Specialists


dVerse Poets Pub : Open Link Night, Week 44

hosted by Joseph Hesch


i’m beating the clock by under an hour tonight

so no expanded commentary on the prompt from dVersepoets

which, in itself, is a commentary on what they espouse, all are welcome –

and as the host of the night, joseph hesch, says, “We serve all who enter these virtual doors. And we listen, too…”

in honor of teaching, graduations, and the coming end of school for summer (for some 😉 ) i post a poem from 1997 i still feel as strongly about as when i wrote it 😉


Teaching Is Sometimes…


even when just plain hard as

old wood, is sometimes fun –

… is sometimes exhilarating, new

ideas crackling like fireworks –

… is sometimes a seed forgotten

 but suddenly blooming –

… is sometimes lightning

exposing growth and structure

within the temporary darkness –

… but teaching is never ever never

something away from the

“real world,” but rather

… is sometimes the source

and often the reason

anything is real.

  1. it’s so important that we have good teachers that can explain us the real world.. my daughter is just about to become a teacher and i know that she will do a wonderful job..a fine poem…much truth in this


  2. often the reason for anything real, yet like lightning…smiles…i taught for a couple years back in the day…i really liked it and have had thoughts at times of returning to the classroom….
