Thank you Two Writing Teachers for providing a meeting place for reflective writers around the globe. I am offering this slice for Day 30 of the 16th Annual SOLSC! #SOL23 March Writing Challenge.

"Spring is a reminder of how beautiful change can truly be."
This Wednesday, Margaret Simon, posted a beautiful rainbow collage collection, Lake Fausse Pointe trail photo that she photographed (see below). You can also see Margaret's draft poem here. She asked those interested to write a small poem and post it on her blog, This Photo Wants to be a Photo.
I started writing #smallpoems to match Margaret's photo with the quick write below.

A Seasonal Unveiling
spring quietly flowered
rainbow colors adorned trails
winter stepped back
new arrivals made their way

Then, I decided to write etherees for this month's writing challenge from the Poetry Princesses. This ten-line form begins with a single syllable, and each line expands by one syllable until the tenth line has ten. The Poetry Princesses continued with their 2023 theme of transformation. You can find written etherees from the Poetry Sisters and others at Tanita Davis' blog site: fiction, instead of lies!}. They will also be on social media under the hashtag, #PoetrySisters.
Winter sighed, stepped back,
gently passed its baton,
urging seasonal changes.
Windsong breathed in freshness; exhaled
softly tossing nature's artifacts.
Spring smiled and prepared to awaken life.

I also wrote a modified etheree for last week's Poetry Friday & 16th Annual March #SOLSC! #SOL23 Day 23. You can access that here. I planned on refining it but I never found the time to do so.
Spring is a season of renewal and hope. May springtime 2023 open doors to new possibilities.
