31 Day Challenge October

Day 15: My kind of ‘Calm’

The clutter of my desk during a mid-week free lesson

and the scribbles of To Do lists scrawled across my planner

In the vocab list collated on the whiteboard

and the unsteady handwriting of my scribe, struggling with the interactive pen

In the half-drunk cups of tea

and catching bits of banter in the staff room

In the chaos of the corridors

and the Hello’s and Salaam’s and How are you’s

In the marksheets and registers

and confessions of favourite books and characters

I am at peace. This is my calm.
