A Teaching Heart
by Cindee Snider Re  
6/24/2011 / Poetry


You offer wisdom, experience,
Knowledge, self
With open hands,
Stringing life together
Like seasons --
Moments and hues,
A kaleidoscope of shades,
And patterns playing
Across the days.

Bits of broken glass,
Baseball and bat,
Driftwood bleached
White in the sun,
Fields swaying soft
With cornflowers,
Sap Suckers,
Redwings and robins,
An impromptu Saturday bouquet.

Your passion draws me
Four hands scooping sand,
Dripping it wet into turrets
Crowning our castle
With field grass,
Proud.

You quietly encourage me
To S T R E T C H
One step farther,
A little higher,
A little longer,
And I
L
E
A
P
Just because you think I can.

For in you beats the
Heart of a teacher,
God-breathed
From the moment of conception,
Love without conditions,
Or hesitation or reservations,
Or agenda,

More than your career,
Your calling.

Who you are,
What you do,
How you live,
Pouring out your life as a offering,
Every moment of
Every day
Of all my life

Investing,
Encouraging,
Lifting, stooping,
Listening, caring,
Cheering on toward the
Goal --

Student ready to fly,
To S O A R
On passion's wings,
Carried on current of love,
Into the great wide world.

Nest, now empty,
Quiet,
Waiting

Waiting
For the next
New hatchling.

Another chance
To watch the still-wet wings
Begin to stretch and fly,
Moments of life strung together
Like seasons --
A kaleidoscope of hues,
Patterns and shades playing
Across the days,

Gift of a teaching heart.

*Written in honor of my Dad and the other beautiful teaching hearts who've poured blessing upon blessing into my life.

Cindee Snider Re lives in Sussex, WI with her husband, their five children, two cats, and two Shichon puppies. She enjoys quiet evenings, long walks, good books, homeschooling her kids, and lots of good, strong, hot, black tea.
