#sol16 March 29: Confession Slices

Slice of LIfe  I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March.  You should do it too!  Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing! 


Confession Slices
This morning I rushed around, shouted that I was late 
and then stopped for coffee
at my favorite place.

I hid my kids' Easter baskets in the trunk of my car
but my candy is in the cabinet
easy to reach.

Actually, the jelly beans are right here
on my desk,
very easy to reach.

I haven't finished a book in weeks
but I have started plenty
and there are books everywhere.

If I could, I'd wake up my daughter right now
and watch Gilmore girls
for a couple of hours.

I kind of miss playing King's Quest
on my old IBM
from when I was 8.

I helped my kids burn leaves
on the driveway today,
and tried to make a real fire.

I don't think this is a real slice
but I'm writing it anyway,
because it's all I have.

  1. I also love this slice… I miss playing pacman…can relate to starting books, especially when I’m stressed, no book seems good enough to keep reading. The descriptions of the easter baskets and jelly beans made me smile.

  2. I love how you’ve crafted each of your confessions into a poem! I think these little secrets are so fun to share, because they are the types of thoughts that would otherwise go unexpressed!
