Hanging on the Sky

A teacher must do as she instructs. And requiring my social media writing students to produce mandates I do the same. Which is good. It’s been too long.

Hanging on the Sky

We mortals spin because the full moon is nigh,

living in anguish and wondering why

The heavens weep and the mountains shake…

…fueling the angst our feeble minds make.

While the answer hangs on the evening sky–

We mortals spin because the full moon is nigh.

About Pam Avery Printed

I graduated from the University of Georgia in 1972 with a major in journalism (public relations) and a minor in business (marketing). My experience for the last 40 years includes working in the corporate world (banking), the newspaper industry (advertising design and sales), owning and selling a restaurant, restoring and utilizing several old buildings on the property, teaching private dance and drama lessons for 20 years, free-lance writing for a national textile firm, publishing two children’s books, and ghost writing a book. My last tour of duty before beginning the current chapter was working as a reporter, photographer, and columnist for five weekly community newspapers. And now I teach...media writing at Columbus State University in Columbus Ga. I consider myself very fortunate--I get to be around intelligent, energetic and enthusiastic young people. What a joy. I believe the written word is one of the most powerful tools known to humankind. And now we have the ability to reach millions with a simple click of the mouse. Wow.
