Praise for Bare Pavement #SOLSC23

Today’s Slice was inspired by today’s nor’easter in my neck of the woods.


for bare pavement

that keeps us safe

as we travel hither and yon.

Let plows traverse

Its craggy surface,

scattering crystals of stability

shimmering in. the afternoon light.

Let shovels scour

perilous sidewalks

guiding school children and dog walkers

safely home.

Linger longer, snow,

upon grass, hillsides, and roofs,

blanketing homes and tender buds

until spring has settled.

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.

  1. Here in Minnesota we now have sidewalks that are clear of ice and snow. Although very narrow due to high snow banks. Rain is due later this week so I expect we will be back to ice. I expect you are just like us. We get the snow and rain and that is travels your way. Stay Safe!
