School – It makes you think…

When I think of going to school
I think about not breaking rules
To think of things that are nice and good
I do think about my school: my neighbourhood
—-
To think of all our teachers that help
We should think & behave; so there’s no need to yelp
Thoughts of playing with our friends
Thinking of a time when we can meet again
—-
Thinking today of our school year
Thinking of my parents worries and fears
I can think that soon this time will end
I can think of home school: that email to send
—-
Thinking of what I really long for
Thinking I really want to learn more
Thinking of the laughing and squealing
Thinking; how is everyone feeling?
—-
Thinking of getting back to my school
Thinking of all the things that make it cool
I think I like the reading and numbers best
I think I we will all pass this test
—-
I do think we will find the time
I’m thinking this as I write this rhyme
My thoughts won’t put you on the brink
I just know how School makes me think…

Stage 3 ‘Readily..’ (for the season) Day 16

ticking-along

Time to get your things

Time to pray and give thanks

Time now for the choir to sing

Time to make those xmas plans

 

Time to figure out if you believe

Time to remain above the fray

Time to give and hopefully receive

Time to celebrate The Christmas Day?

Stage 3 ‘In Readiness’ (for the season) Day 14

waiting-game

Relax,  exhale, breathe

Shiver, twitch, distract

Wait, work, reveal

Food, stomach, attract…

Stage 2 ‘Preparations’ (for the season) Day 9

waiting-game-of-patience

Yes its supposed to be a virtue

Good things come to those who wait

A couple of weeks in lieu

The 25th is coming, so remember that date…

Stage 2 – ‘Preparations ‘ (for the season) Day 8


Snowflakes fall,

Snowflakes dance

Snowflakes we are in awe

Snowflakes please take a chance

To twirl from the winter white sky

To dissolve on our nose

To inspire as we stand by

To shower and cover our Xmas clothes…

Stage 2 ‘Preparations ‘ (for the season) Day 7


Signs of the times are all around us now

Courageously we have nothing to hide

Huge outpourings of love is what’s allowed

Fearlessly promote this spirit with pride..

Stage 2 ‘preparations'(for the season) Day 6


Inside or out set the tone

Let everyone know it’s time

The decorations are up around our homes

As we ready the turkey and mulled wine…

Stage 1 (for the season) Day 5


Another day drifts past like snow

We’re one step nearer our goal

As we patiently wait

For that 25th date

The abandoned can come in from the cold..

Stage 1 (for the season) Day 4


So another day is chalked off

Excitedly we’ve opened our box

Time to get the gear from the loft

And maybe start wearing our xmas socks?

Stage 1 For the season (day 3)

The anticipation begins to build

Trees going up sets the tone

As we dress up the green

They are a sight to be seen

Shining hope into all our homes
