"serving up a slice" to the March SOLSC

for this challenge
to capture moments.
slice to
observe life
finding time to
notice beauty now.

gives way to
sunshine, I pause,
slow down, and savor.

An Arun: a fifteen-line poem in three sets of five lines. Each set of five lines follows the same syllable structure: starting with one syllable and increasing by one (1/2/3/4/5 — 3x).

  1. Great job Ramona! Selecting just the right words to match the syllables is tricky, but you told it well! It is about slowing down, noticing, and savoring.

  2. Captures our month very well, Ramona. This must be a challenging structure & you found just the words for slicing. Have a wonderful rest of the day!

  3. I like the form of this poem (new to me) and the words you choose to savor the moment. Your poem captures this month of slicing so well.

  4. Great poem! I discovered this here at TWT, too. I've tried it a few times, and introduced it to fourth and fifth graders. Some students really liked it.
