Labyrinthine Mosaic

Life’s labyrinthine steps


Mysterious tiles luring, leading


Journey…love, laughter, loss, triumphs…

Following voice within—God, Muse, Teacher—onward to Destiny.

Mr A’s Geography

Today’s genre: School Story (info on genre here)

Today’s photo:

Other than English class

I was a doomed student…

Too much stress at home

Lacked focus, concentration

Brain, a sieve, leaked teachers’

Words while hormone-fueled

Fantasies flew wild.

Junior High, insane bane of

Educational existence…but

8th-grade geography had its star.

Not that I retained anything of

Lessons…couldn’t label a map

Correctly to save pitiful young soul.

I sat, attentive, for single reason…

Only to gaze most adoringly at

‘Forever’ heartthrob, Mr A.

(Inked initials all over notebook.)

He was movie-idol handsome

Coal black hair, blue ice eyes

Perfect planes of masculine face

Physique to model classic suit.

Harsh, typically irritated, he liked

To bang yardstick on front row’s

Desks…teaching, probably not

His first-choice profession.

I can’t recall my final grade, made

Shameful showing, I suppose:

Crowded Europe into space

Of England…sighed, as I admired

Mr A’s straight nose.

Wherever you are, Mr A, you still hold place in my heart♥
