March 22 Today Was A Day

I’m writing every day of March for the Slice of Life Challenge at Two Writing Teachers

Today was a learning day
a long day
a listening day

Today was a win-a-raffle day
a wonder-what-the-doctor-will-say day
a wait, what? day

Today was a travel day
a talk-to-college-daughter day
a tell-me-more-about-it day

Today was a a sit-all-day-long day
a surprise dinner with my boys day
a special-day-we-don’t-celebrate-any-more day

Today was a hump day Wednesday
a heavy day
a hello-glass-of-wine day

Today was
as they say,
a day

  1. This is beautiful. The words all feel so perfectly chosen that your poem feels like a mentor text that I want to study to figure out how exactly you made it so beautiful. Hope you’re able to go to bed early and that tomorrow is better!

  2. Ona, what a neat way to write a slice of your life. I love all the hyphenated adjectives that showed what you did on this day. Lots of fun!

  3. I agree with Denise–this is a neat way to write a slice. I love using made-up hyphenated words and you did this so well. And you’re right, it was a day!
