A tuft of feathers, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

Planets lose their way,
birds and flowers turn to dust—
the old teacher weeps.

  1. That had me thinking!!

  2. I expect teachers do weep as they remember students and their hopes and dreams for them (and students do too as they remember the ones they loved).

  3. Sometimes however much the universe tries to inform us we seem not to hear – until it’s too late..and then of course..it’s not our fault.. as ever a unique and powerful perspective

  4. Wow!
    You say so much with so little!

  5. Oh, this is poignant. And very beautiful.

  6. She has much to weep about these days.

  7. some students will never learn…sigh…

  8. That is the greatest disappointment for a teacher: Teaching with heart and soul and discovering that students have learnt precious little. Nature is a wonderful teacher, pity we as her students we have lost our way and cannot learn…
