Back to School.

I watched my students move on today. I had bonded with them, trained them,  showed them how to jump hurdles and tenderly coaxed them through their exams.
They were my little gemstones.
Now they move onto the next level, and they are no longer mine.
In truth, they never were.
Students belong to themselves.
It’s the flowers that do the growing.
