April - Poetry Month - 2024, Day Twenty-Four, X is for X-ray

  Happy Poetry Month!

        I'm taking the advice from the poet who has given so much to help us all, including students and teachers, write poetry. I'll be moving from A to Z, obviously needing to combine a few to make it all come out to 30. FYI—Sometimes, Paul Janeczko offers a prompt to write a poem that begins with the specific alphabet letter instead of a poem type. It will be fun to be open to writing in all kinds of ways!

        Day 24 - X, I chose X-ray

From a Teacher to A Student 


They reveal what is not readily seen

the inside of a body, the bones, in between,

but when I wish to see the most important part

ofttimes, it’s hiding, deep within the heart.

No x-ray has been created;

No technology today

will peel the layers back, just so

to show me what I yearn to know –

the inside-technicolor “YOU” show.
