Day 8 – SOLSC #sol17
The weather I woke up to this morning inspired me to write a poem. I decided to try this “outside, inside” structure for this poem. I had this structure used by another Slicer on their blog and bookmarked as a mentor text. (Click here to see that post)
Outside, wind is howling, dancing with the tree tops.
Inside, we are still, listening, laying in bed, warm and cozy.
Outside, rain is pouring, beating against the windows.
Inside, the quiet sounds of coffee dripping and the news humming in the background signals the day has begun.
Outside, it is dark and gloomy.
Inside it is warm and cozy. Sipping coffee, snuggled in blankets.
Outside it is raining, birds are singing
Inside we quietly tiptoe around, getting ready for our day, careful not to wake the little one just yet.
Outside it is calm. The wind and rain have died down and the sky is brightening.
Inside it is busy. Everyone’s awake – the morning chaos is in full swing. Get showered, Get dressed, brush your teeth, put your shoes on, hurry up, let’s go – Don’t forget your lunch!
Can’t we just stay in our comfy beds on this gloomy day?
