Awakening Assumption

It is hard to believe another March has arrived, and it is time for another Slice of Life Challenge.  This is my third year of participating.  Thank you Two Writing Teachers for creating this space for me to share my corner of the world.

Last week as I was leaving school, I noticed the buds on the small maple trees along the walkway. I know it is wishful thinking, but could spring be on the way?  Here is a quick draft of a spring haiku.

spring is arriving


  1. As I notice our trees swelling with buds, I get my hopes up too.

  2. "Awakening assumption" -- awesome line! Keeping my fingers crossed and my assumptions in check that spring is near.

  3. YAY for spring!!! YAY for a beautiful haiku!! Thank you for sharing!

  4. Love it! I wrote a spring haiku yesterday, and I have read a lot of spring-inspired writing. Everyone is ready!

  5. I think it's more than assumption -- you have evidence! I think we are ready for spring to arrive!
