Weekday Warrior!

I'm not gonna lie. My weekend performance on the Slice of Writing project has been brutal. Many factors typically play into this, but at the end of the day, there are no excuses. Just bad execution.

Oh well. At this point, I'm just glad that: a. the two family members who were sick on Friday/Saturday are better now, and b. the gorgeous weather will stick around for at least a little while!

We've been doing some poetry work in class recently, and last week students submitted some final draft/published Haiku. So in that tradition, here are some for your Monday:


Filling out? Maybe...
So many teams, not a care
Who wins, just not Duke!


Oh, Gophers, so close
But yet, oh so far away!
NIT Ahead

School Lunch

Ode to taco day
Glorious stains on your shirt
Cmon kid, wipe that!


  1. Your last poem made me laugh! Love it! Thanks for venturing into the world of poetry.

  2. On "Brackets" - my Arizona team is NOT in the tournament this year. I may have to rebel and not watch. I'm just sayin'......

  3. Uh oh, "just not Duke" ... good thing my sister's not in the SOLS challenge! :)

  4. Love the poetry. My favorite is the last one - such voice.
