Slice of Life: Robin Knows 23 of 31


For the month of March, I'll be writing with the Slice of Life community. Disclaimer: I'll be writing every day so the writing will be a bit unpolished most days. Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for bringing this community together and for inspiring me to try to find the stories that surround me each day.

Today I continue to gear up for 30 days of poetry in April. I'm cross-posting with the Poetry Friday Community. Laura Purdie Salas is hosting the gathering today at Writing the World for Kids.


Robin
perches on the branch
singing
her song.
The ground below
a mix:
winter white,
brown,
emerging green.

The air
around
still chilled.
The sun
fights
to rise above.
The sky
bluest of blues,
beginning
to show
promise.

Robin
knowingly
watches
from her branch.
Looking for
signs.
Waiting for
spring.

  1. I love this --I needed this poem this morning! Thank you for bringing spring to Boston -- all I see is a blanket of white outside my window.

  3. Thanks for your telling and lovely poem about spring! It describes Chicago’s present weather perfectly. If it weren’t for the wonderful robins we might not know it’s spring.

  4. Cathy, I love your still bird. Usually bird poems are all about the flying, but your observant bird is beautiful!

  5. I love what those robins who arrive do do when it really isn't spring weather? They must be patient as you've written, Cathy. Lovely imagination!

  6. Yes, this captures the longing for spring, Cathy. If you want to create an image poem with these thoughts for my winter gallery, send it on.

  7. I love the stillness in this image, and the wisdom of the waiting robin!
