Sounds of Spring

Chirping of birds
and their young,
the soft pat
of a bunny’s feet
through a meadow,
The rustle
of flower petals supporting
a monarch.

(That’s all fine and good,
if but a little passé.)

The best sound of spring
is a student’s aha moment.


Poem inspired during a writing lesson about creating a detective character, when a student exclaimed that he had changed his mind about his career,  his now wants to be a writer.
