2016 OctPoWriMo - #3

Today's prompt was "Sparkle." I thought about a time when I walked into a classroom and the sparkle could not be missed or contained.

Guest Speaker

Starry brown faces
registered surprise, joy, awe
"She's a black teacher!"

Bodies wriggled, eyes
twinkled, awaited a voice
that sounded like home.

  1. A voice that sounded like home...powerful powerful line. I love it!
