{not now} 23/31 #sol17

The March Slice of Life Story Challenge
hosted at the Two Writing Teachers.
Join us for a month of writing!

Yes ... of course you are here (deep sigh). 

Come on in (even though you were never invited).
To be honest, now is not a good time (and really, it never is).

Finishing the last days before spring break (counting down).
Feeling a little stressed as I'm trying to pack (and repack).

There is too much going on for you to stay (please not too long).
A day or two, but then really you should move along (for good).

Just know sunshine & warmer temps will push you gone (goodbye).
And you will be left behind (for good).

I hate this spring cold that sprung a day ago (days before vacation).
I wish I could say not now, but you are here (not for long).

Yes ... of course you are here (deep sigh again).


Author's note: This little slice format was borrowed from my friend Chris, who writes at Reading Amid the Chaos.


  1. Oh no! I had the same thing that started two days before my spring break. Good luck!

  2. Why won't the the weather just behave itself! (I like these in your writing)

  3. This was such a fun format! I love that it these feelings could be talking about a variety of things. I also liked the parts you put into parentheses. Funny!

  4. Some things you can't influence. They just are. For now. Sunshine and warmer temps will make their magic. Interesting format.

  5. Soak up that sunshine and take some Airborne. Hopefully it'll soon be gone (for good). Hugs, Mom

  6. Fun format for a sad condition. Go away cold!

  7. I loved the suspense of this poem. First I thought it might be an administrator coming to observe. Then I thought it might be a relative. Unfortunately, it was worse than either of those. Hope you are feeling better soon.

  8. Emergen-C! It really does work!

  9. I really wish your cold would go away (so you feel better for your trip)

  10. Your writing is so delightful!
    SO sorry you are sick!
