Look Closely

This post is for Day 12 of the 2019 Slice of Life Challenge. Thanks to the Two Writing Teachers for bringing this community of writers together to share our writing in the month of March.

I grabbed my spring jacket and stepped out the door eager to look for the signs of spring. Here's a collection of my thoughts as I took in this beautiful day.

Look closely and you will see the early signs of spring.

     a sudden greening of the grass

     spring bulbs reaching for the sun

     trees bursting with buds

     birds darting through the trees

     shadows made by the sun

     neighbors stepping out of their winter caves

     spring is here



  1. I was excited that when we came out from the rocky game on Sunday at about 6:45- It was still light out! Spring is in the air!

  2. I had to chuckle - it must of been later in the day when you grabbed your spring coat. I left with my parka. I too noticed my bulbs coming up more and I loved your line of neighbors stepping out of their winter caves. I came home to a court full of toddlers.
