Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV

The penny is an underappreciated piece of currency.  Undervalued, taken for granted, often discarded!  But, for college-bound high school seniors, every penny begins to count as they look toward college costs.  Shifting from the idea of fun pocket change to funding education — one’s point of view, and stage in life, makes all the difference.

My son entertained you with his earlier pear bread poem, and now has shared another — a plea for your vote, a minute of your time, to help him become a finalist for a $500 college scholarship. Vote for Charles Bray’s photo by noon EST on September 16, here: http://www.universitylanguage.com/finalists/, but do enjoy the poem regardless!  And thank you to those who already have voted, thanks to my last post.

Poetic Plea for a Pretty Penny 

I’ve never written poems for a reason, you see,
But only to please the masses (ha, I joke).
I’m going to college now, however, you know,
And I’m short on funds for classes (help, I’m broke!)

So I search far and wide for student capital,
Entering many a contest.
Each and every last resource, I’ll tap it all,
Until the whole of my tuition is addressed.

Now it appears that I’m really in the running;
My photo has made it quite far.
It needs to make finals now, for which I’m gunning,
But the door to a good education remains…just slightly ajar.

 I ask of you a small but important favor:
To throw open this door for me.
Just simply click a bubble by a name, my name—
And Thank You, in all sincerity.

 P.S.H. (Post Scriptum Haiku) 

The contest is tight
And time, limited, so please:
Vote, for each one counts!

 Thank You Again!
