Haibun Monday - Back to School
"Whether you begin a new school year yourself, you send your first (or last) to college, or you recall your own back to school adventures, write your haibun alluding to back to school!"
Soon as September arrived, my mother would start singing,
"The Party's Over". Oh how I hated to hear that song.
Then there was the horror of shopping for school clothes.
I never liked anything she picked out. Even then I was a
color person, and she was pure earth tones.
In the second grade, I had Miss Gordon, whom I loved.
After that it was pretty much downhill. On one hand,
I can name the teachers I liked. On the other, there
was Mrs. Snelling, two miserable years in a row.
