Idiom-osophy



I have lots of magnetics to choose from for my Magnetic Poetry play day. I got a little crazy and chose one word from every bag. I'm not going to do that again!


people, teacher, ball, stare, yesterday, everlasting, catches the worm


Idiom-osophy

History catches the worm
in an everlasting dance with destiny
while Future's teacher gets the ball rolling
past crowds of people
who simply stand
and
stare.

  1. Although you have regret, you made the words work, Mary Lee. I love "history catches the worm", intriguing beginning.

  2. Wow! What a tough challenge! I love when we give ourselves a specific, difficult task and then just see what happens. I think from "Future's teacher" onward is brilliant:>)

  3. It is so neat how play often begets insight. It's true here, and I have a feeling it will be true all month. Also, I am wanting to play with your little magnet bags, friend. xx

  4. Ok, that was tricky, but you pulled it off. I was imagining my Kindergarteners simply standing and staring when they are confused. :-) -- Christie @ https://wonderingandwondering.wordpress.com/

  7. So many great phrases. I hadn’t thought to just pull some words from the magnetic poetry. A perfect moment.

  8. This is a brilliant poem and it sounds like it must've taken ALL DAY to write!! Love the title, too.
