Reflect in the Stillness of March - #sol19/Day11

This weekend daylight saving time brought another layer of light to winter days and a special event to add to my #Twitter calendar. Are you ready to celebrate #NationalNappingDay today, the Monday after daylight saving time? While there is no time for me to nap, I thought I would write.

As March briskly marched in
Time bowed its head.
Winter saluted.
Reflection paused.
All launched their campaigns:
Winter lingered.
Time fidgeted.
Reflection paused.
March held on tight
To Winter's grasp.
Daylight Saving Time arrived.
Spring planned
Its resurrection.

I am joining Two Writing Teachers for the March Slice of Life Story Challenge.
-Day 11 of 31 days of writing-


  1. Oh, Carol, national napping day! There's still a bit of time in my afternoon for a nap. We'll see. I need to write my post first. Love these lines from your poem:
    "Winter lingered.
    Time fidgeted.
    Reflection paused."
    And then:
    "Spring planned
    Its resurrection."

  2. Ramona, I just got home from errands so I want to check out your post. I hope you got a nap. It is going to be a long night for me. I have to get my PD presentation off by morning. I have been trying to connect with the teacher whose classroom I will be teaching in.
