September 23, 2015, Chino Valley- In this third day of my trial run at Mingus Springs, one of my teaching tasks involved breaking down the writing of a cinquain, one of the simpler forms of poetry, so that it was comprehensible to my 21 eight-year-olds.
It is only fair, therefore, that today’s “Road” entry be a cinquain of my own device. It is a reflection on the episode that was the season premiere of “NCIS”.
Poised and ready
At a moment’s notice,
My teams are thus: Son and siblings, Faith Community, colleagues, students, dedicated friends.
“I’ve met your team. How can you say you’re alone?”- Jon Cryer to Mark Harmon, in the above-mentioned episode. Indeed, and neither am I, really alone.
