The beauty of back-to-school

there was a brief time in my life
when the back-to-school aisles
seemed like a suffocating summer heat
scorning my dormant dreams
spitting upon exhausted eyes
stirring the hurt in my heart

while many teachers dread the sight
I savor the splendor
what was once a reminder of the lacking
is now a reminder of the blessing,
of the perfect provision,
the home,
the joy
