A Good Friend – Haiku

We always need good friends who listen even when we are unable to speak the words. They have a sense that something is amiss.

Black and Write

Sympathetic ear

Listening without a word

A very good friend

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  1. That is so true Ivon. So many feelings in so few words. Thank you. Sheri

  2. I think when we fall in love, we are kind of blind, we choose with the heart. Friends are with us because we attract them with the intellectual power and the heart. They are like mirrors, open to reflect us entirelely. I value fiendship a lot and I look up to my friends to know myself better.
    Thanks for sharing,

    By the way, I’m curious like cats. You mentioned alternative school. How is that different from a public school?
