SunWE – Prose Poem Lesson Learned

Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on September 17, 2012 0 Comments

Out and about on Saturday, learning lesson on global studies.  My daughter has seen both the American and Canadian side of Niagara Falls. Yes, Niagara Falls is in the U.S.  It is on the border.  Every year they rebuild the steps for the Cave of the Winds all the way up to the hurricane deck.  Please watch your step – slippery when wet.  I have never been too chicken to ascend.  Climbing ever higher, trepidation descends, leaving one to wonder: Is it out and about or out and aboot?  Lessons learned on a Saturday.
