SOLC Day 21: A Trio of Short Poems

March 2021 SOLC–Day 21
A huge thank you to Two Writing Teachers for all that they do to create an amazing community of writers and a safe, welcoming space to write, learn, share and grow.

Each morning this weekend,
I snuck away to the river,
eager to slip
a sliver of serenity
into this series
of “To Do List” days.

Cold nights linger
Winter clutches at the river
stakes her claim
with scattered hieroglyphics

against a winter weary scene
red winged blackbird
welcomes spring

    Lingering, weary, yet signs of hopeful warmer days coming. Watching spring unfold is a favorite pastime of mine.

    These are divine! “Winter clutches at the river/stakes her claim/with scattered hieroglyphics” is one of my favorite lines of this year’s “Slice of Life” – captures that image beautifully with perfect word choice!

  5. Winter clutches at the river… I love that description and that you included a really amazing photograph with it, too.

    I am glad that you had the time to sneak away and bring us a beautiful trio of photos and accompanying poems, Molly. The 2nd one resonates with me with the words you chose to define the image.
