Whispers of wind flowing on a breeze.
Sounds like rushing waters, a flowing stream, a quiet river.
Leaves no longer green, but reds, yellows, browns or bare.
The nip of frost just within reach in the air.
Where does it all go? Time, that is.
We have winter, spring, summer, then FALL.
We fall back in time, resetting our clocks.
We fall back into our routines, our schedules, and our box.
We fall back to the rigorous demands of planning and teaching.
We fall back to juggling the many hats it means to be you – An Educator.
We fall back to needing more time while running out of it.
We fall back to operating within one of the noblest professions of all – Educating.
While we fall back into this calling, we dared answer,
Remember to listen to the whispers of the wind flowing on a breeze.
Permit yourself to follow the sounds as you breathe in the life around you.
Listen as the fall sings, and let it guide your way in the doing that must be done.
