This is a beautiful poem and accompanying picture. We often go through life as a certainty. The reality is it is more like walking a path with a gentle breeze pressing at our backs.

through the jelly jar


hello to you, lost friends
waiting by the path

hello to you, gentle breeze
pressing at my back

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  2. I am amazed how deep and profound certain poems or quotes hold within that simplicity, like zen.

    Similar to May the sun always shine on your face

    May the wind be behind you back with your sails sprung tight from the power.
