Slicing Etheree #SOLSC23

Happy opening day, all. SOLSC opening day, that is. This is my sixth year participating and I’m excited to get started and read everyone else’s small moments. My opening Slice for this season is in the form of an etheree, a poem of ten lines. Each line has the number of syllables in the line’s number — one in one, two in two, etc… I came to this form from Stacey Joy’s Ethical ELA post from February 22. You can read it here. Here we go!


all month

the stories

of your life and

share them with the world.

Stories so small they might

pass you by if you don’t stop

to notice them. They can be shy,

but with care and attention, Slices

bring laughter, tears, hope to those who read them.

Thanks for wondering and wandering a bit with me today. And many thanks to the crew at Two Writing Teachers, and the extended SOL community, for giving us the time, space, and encouragement to live the writerly life here every Tuesday throughout the year and daily during the month of March. Happy Slicing!
