Prompt #9 A mixed bag

1 Comment
Thankyou for the “mixed bag” of types of poetry being sent through.
Congratulations to Australia in The Commonwealth Games with 198 medals
Please continue to send any poetry this week to:

In the last week I was sent a poem from a writer in America and thought to put it in today. It’s wonderful that OS writers are following our blog.
Throughout the world, we each sometimes fall
Entrenched in our ways, or simply succomb to powerless
Apathy. Children remind us to stop, reflect, to
Challenge ourselves, approach the world in curiosity.
Help each other to take brave risks.
Examine our privilege and take responsibility for systemic inequalities.
Reassess, react, reimagine, revolution. Repeat.

Madeleine is a globetrotter, vegan animal rights activist, and educator currently teaching primary school in Israel. She spends her free time reading, writing, running, and ruining her poor flatmates’ kitchen aesthetic with her ever-growing kombucha brew. She likes to make sure to learn or explore something new each day
And today’s quote:
Don Poynter was among other things the inventor of  Uncle Fester’s Mystery Light Bulb featured on the “Addams Family” show.
As it’s school holidays we won’t have Teacher Notes for a few Thursdays. All Teachers have a nice break and enjoy reading a poem each morning.
Cheers
