Great Job Fellow Slicers! A Celebration Acrostic Poem

Here I sit on the night before the end of the March Challenge and I don’t know what to say. My daughter and I took a beautiful bird walk today, but I’ve already written about those walks. I’m not into writing about politics tonight…just not in the mood. And I’m no longer actively teaching, so no ideas about that.

So I’m resorting to a device that’s worked for me in the past…an acrostic poem.

G  ee, can it really be March 31st?
 emember how long ago March 1st was?
E  very day in March was a challenge
A  ll month I have wondered what to write next
T  hen an idea suddenly popped into my head

J    oin me in celebrating the friendships we’ve made
O  nline communities like this one are unique
 efore we part, I wanted to say best wishes to all

 ome of us have learned some valuable things
L  ess is more when you’re writing a slice
I  have never learned that lesson!
C  an you tell us what you’ve learned this March?
E  very post is a message from a Slicer’s heart
R  eflecting on this past month all I can say is…
 o many writers, so little time!

Great Job Fellow Slicers!

An SOL Acrostic


As I was taking my favorite walk today along the shore of Cold Spring Harbor, NY, enjoying the ducks who appeared to be mating and having a grand old time, I came up with the idea for this acrostic:

M…any new Slicers to welcome, many seasoned Slicers to revisit

A…community of writers is ready to welcome you

R…emember to respond unto others as they would respond unto you

C…reativity is alive and well in this SOL community of writers

H…ow many Slices can you read each day?

S…licers never give up!

O…pen your heart and your Slice will follow

L…et go of your trepidation

S…eize the moment and

C…hannel your energy into writing!
