A sign #SOLC19

I’m struggling

To find the good

In this day

In this week

But I found a little

Just a very little

Waiting for me

At home

On this sunny afternoon

I had to look for it

It was hard to see

But it was there

Waiting for me

The new

Amongst the old

Forcing its way up

Against resistance


To find a path forward



This post is part of the annual month-long Slice of Life writing challenge organized by Two Writing Teachers. Join us! It’s my third year of slicing in the challenge and I’m looking forward to writing and learning along with all of you.

  2. Christie, I’m feeling for you as it is evident that these past few days have clearly been a struggle. Your ability in this writing to express the wonderful gift of the little things that are not so little is heartwarming. Virtual hug to you, my friend.

  3. It’s amazing how the first sight of those bulbs can turn a mood, a day, a week around! I spotted mine on Sunday when we came home from Vermont! Your poem is one many can relate to! Thanks for sharing!
