This month, a group of blogger/poets have been involved in writing to soothe our souls using the hashtag, #haikuforhealing created by Mary Lee Hahn.
Yesterday, Catherine Flynn wrote a haiku alerting East Coast residents that snow was starting to fall in her area. That meant Long Island would be next according to the forecast. Sure enough, shortly after I saw Catherine's tweet tiny slivers of snow, almost invisible, started to hit my windshield. They were miniscule but snow nonetheless, so I created this #imagepoem in response to Catherine's haiku.

I followed up with another:
it crept in slowly
watching its own descent
vanished in the night
This morning, I marveled at what I saw and wrote again.
snow touched upon earth
leaving faint trails to follow
rain took over reins
Today, life was busy so writing took a backseat until now. When I saw Irene Latham's tweet, peace was found and writing flourished.

peace - this end of autumn night
It is amazing how writing soothes my soul at the end of day when the hustle and bustle of life took precedence. Can I encourage you to create alongside Mary Lee and her community of writers this month?
Please visit Two Writing Teachers because it is Slice of Life Tuesday.
Peace to All!
