Slice of Life 20: Snow on March 20
By Janice Ewing
Instead of warming breezes and brightening skies
we have a cover of clouds and dusting snow
Instead of promising green grass
we have still another white-blanketed lawn
Instead of watching for crocuses and robins
we’re checking for slick spots
Instead of jumping out of bed
spring hit the snooze alarm
Stretching and rolling over
for a bit more rest
to finish a dream
