(I am participating in the March Slice of Life challenge via the Two Writing Teachers site.  Slice of Life is the idea of noticing the small moments. I have been a participant for many years and each year, I wonder if I will have the energy to write every day. This year, I am going to try to coincide it with my daily poetry writing, and intend to compose small poems on small moments. We’ll see how it goes …)

Day One

I’m looking
as she’s reaching,
fingertips for the solitary
snowflake,

a floating apparition
in the early
Springtime sun,

but then it’s gone
before we even notice
what it is
we were watching
when we were watching
this

a trace of hope,
like a lover’s kiss

Peace (and poems),
Kevin
