MY BLACKBOARD
by ©Richard J. Budig

I weary of this weather
February flakes streak by my window
Little bullets of ice-wrapped snow
Scritchy chalk marks on my blackboard
Writing out all my secret winters
Exposing the frozen parts of my soul
Reminding me of flames no longer bright
Of dreams dead from inner blight
Of songs that no longer have words
Of little hands reaching out
Of large hands stuffed in pockets
While the snows of many winters
Rattle the window of my little room

Broker ... chills ran down my spine at the squeak of the chalk down the blackboard.
Very well done. I'll stay after class and help you clean the blackboard ... how about a new eraser and a box of colored chalk?

I'm sorry I missed this earlier and glad I found it now. I like the way you say so much in a few words.

Some people write words and some write poetry. You are definitely the latter, broker.
