Blue-eyed Owl

Eagle Owl Watercolor by Cheryl Renee Long

It has been a long and inward Winter term.

I have met three times a week for ten weeks to write poetry with my students. For their Final Exam, we had a two hour writing marathon. I had writing prompts on slips of paper that we drew.

Then everyone went alone to write, getting back together to read, respond, and discuss our poems.

We wrote for the first hour outside the longhouse and for the second hour outside the theatre under the cherry blossoms
