And Here Comes May

Slice of Life is hosted by Two Writing Teachers!

As quickly as the chalked words decorated my driveway they were gone. 
Here are my children playing in the showers that washed away all of April's words.

If you didn't get a chance to see the beautiful chalk poetry yesterday, take a peek! It might inspire you to go outside and do a little chalking of your own. It has been good for my soul, pass it on.

  1. How sad the words are washed away, but the next sunny day they can reappear. I loved your poem (from yesterday). You must be breathing a sigh of relief, but also feeling adrift. What does May have in store?

    Chalk poetry...what a wonderful idea!

    Our chalk poems were gone this morning too. The secretary just said how much she enjoyed reading them as she was leaving yesterday and how said it was that they were gone this morning. Thanks again for the idea!

    It was lots of fun, Betsy. I envy you the rain, however. We got just enough last week to take my poem, but nothing else recently. Thanks for doing all this!

    I enjoyed the picture combined with text. I especially liked the image created by "that washed away all of April's words."

    Sidewalk chalk + words are very good for the soul. Thanks for writing today.

    Rain cleared the pavement for new creations.

    I love your picture! My first thought was that I was sad to see your words washed away. But then, as I looked at your kids playing in the rain/puddles and the joy they must have been feeling at the time, it makes the sad wash away! Lucky kids you have to be able to play in the rain! :)

    Hey Betsy,
    I love the poetry and the chalk pics. So sorry they are gone so fast.
