Quick Post of 5 Word Lines SOL 2013: 29 0f 31

For the month of March we are challenging ourselves to write a slice every day. 

Slice of Life is sponsored every Tuesday by Stacey and Ruth from Two Writing Teachers.  

I'm sneaking out a day early for spring break so I can spend Easter weekend with my brother and family.  I tried to mimic the six word posts of fellow bloggers, but mine insisted on a five word format!   When you like haiku as much as I do, it's really hard to count words instead of syllables.  

All my plans are written
and my classroom is ready. 
But my bags aren't packed,
because my laundry's not done.
There's no time to slice
because I'm leaving on a 
jet plane bound for Oklahoma
to spend spring break with 
cherished family and dear friends!


  1. Sounds like you are excited and stressed all rolled into one! I hope you have a well deserved break and some haiku fuel from the break!

  2. Wishing you a lovely spring break. This was short, sweet, and effective.

  3. Enjoy! Time with family and friends is precious.

  4. Safe journey and enjoy this precious time, Ramona!

  5. Happy travels, Ramona. I would guess since you're going south that the weather will be good!

  6. Have fun and safe travels with friends and family. You sound excited and ready even though you still have laundry to do. I like the five words...the flow was great and the message made me smile. Jackie

  7. Enjoy your time. Your poem shares your excited mood.
