Today I Love a Walk in the Sun - Slice of Life 2014 - Day 30

Thanks to the good people at Two Writing Teachers for sponsoring the Slice of Life Story Challenge. Today is Day 30 of 31.


Shhh....

No one 

say

 a word.  

I was about to despair

that we would be

"always winter and never Christmas".

But...

we'd already had Christmas.

It's March.

Yesterday
  
it snowed.

Sideways.

A lot.

All day.

Long

heavy

sigh...



Today though...

something different

happened.



Shhh...

The sky cleared.
 
 Shhh...

The road straightened out.


Shhh...

Something green bravely popped its head up.
 



Shhh...

I really don't want to scare it away...




Today I love a walk in the sun...

Shhh...

  1. I could see this poem coming to life through your choice of words. I so agree with you! We were blessed here in southwest Missouri with temperatures in the low 70s's and warm sunshine! Hopefully, it will come your way soon.

  3. Shhh! We really don't want to scare it away. Here's hoping spring will come and stay for awhile.

    1. Thanks, friend! It looks like maybe if we are all really quiet, it just might stay longer than one day a time. We need to figure out what the opposite of flushing ice cubes down the toilet is!
