Poem #1 for 2013 Poetry Month: The Bridge


We start across

The Bridge

thinking we hold on

to  friends, family



some losing their way

others straying

or struggling

 with their own baggage

weary travelers

unable to keep up

or unwilling to try

disappearing  into the distance

not lost

just out of sight

living life

moving on

in different directions


About Lively Literacy Teacher

I was a classroom teacher of grades 1 - 4 for 20 years. I earned my M.A., as a reading specialist for grades K -12 in 2008. I have been fortunate to be a literacy coach and coordinator for public schools since that time. I am a loving mother of two children, a daughter and a son. I am a devoted wife to a police officer. I have two pitbulls and am a lover of all animals, particularly these lovely dogs.
