In Need of Counseling

Hiking, teaching silly songs
Swimming, hugging
Righting wrongs
Tucking in and story time
Keeping six giggling girls
In line
Laughing at the weekly dance
Sneaking out for moonlit
Scenes that repeated
From Monday to Sun.
A summer full
Of counselor fun

This could also be titled "Earning College Living Expenses"  you do what you know and I knew camping...
From the prompt to write about "camp" at Poetic Asides


  1. This reminds me of my day-to-day life with three daughters. :)

    I love your title since you probably are in need of counseling after being a counselor! Or perhaps you are in need of counseling for wanting to be a counselor in the first place. :)

    1. Shawna--you are so right! LOL I definitely felt in need of counseling after summers with those kids--though it was a lot of fun. And watching them delight in nature or learning new things made it all worth it.

      Not exactly resume-worthy though...:-)

    1. Thank you Mad! Felt a little corny, but that kinda goes with the camp theme...


Your words are wonderful! Thanks for popping in--I'll be over in a snap!
