"A teacher asked Paul
what he would remember
from third grade, and he sat
a long time before writing
'this year sumbody tutched me
on the sholder'
and turned his paper in.
Later she showed it to me
as an example of her wasted life.
The words he wrote were large
as houses in a landscape.
He wanted to go inside them
and live, he could fill in
the windows of 'o' and 'd'
and be safe while outside
birds building nests in drainpipes
knew nothing of the coming rain."
- "Rain" by Naomi Shihab Nye
Submission Guidelines/Rules:
(1) Write about an experience in school (elementary, jr. high, high school, college, etc.) that changed your life.
(2) It can be positive or negative.
(3) It can be anything from meeting your future spouse (ha, I wish), to your solo in the school play that led to you becoming a movie star, to giving the graduation speech, to a class that made you realize what you want to be when you grow up. It could be a combination of all of those things. I really don't care.


Nostalgia and some other emotions
