started and ended today

I started my day in the Heartland.
I ended my day in the Northeast.

I started my day with coffee.
I ended my day with raspberries and ice cream.

I started my day with family.
I ended my day with a friend.

I started my day with hurry-up.
I ended my day with scripture.

I started my day with a book half read.
I ended my day with a book almost finished.

I started my day in my bedroom.
I ended my day in a hotel.

  1. The days of traveling – they are mixed emotions day – always good things and some mix feelings about being away from family. I hope your travels are fun!

  2. A busy day with many transitions. The kind of day that might get your had spinning a bit. I hope you have a moment to start some relaxation and end with a great nights sleep!

  3. Definitely sharing this one with my students tomorrow. Ending your day with scripture and a book almost finished – what a treat!

  4. Enjoy your time of creating and refreshing. I love the structure of your day – you do a beautiful job of playing with words.
    P.S. Read my slice today to post a comment on Mrs. Ball's blog. She wrote a blessed “Where I'm From” poem. 🙂

  5. I sense there are some really lucky teachers in your future…

    The pattern in this poem creates rhythm that echoes the meaning in your words. Your day went from busy to serene.

    What are you reading?

  6. Loved this format! And loved hearing about the beginnings and endings and the contrast of the two…heading off to end my day with scripture…better hurry or I'll be starting tomorrow instead!

  7. Like the back and forth of this piece. I love these lines.I started my day with hurry-up.
    I ended my day with scripture.
