Waiting for Normal #SOL21


Join Two Writing Teachers and other teacher-writers as we share a slice of life every single day in the month of March. 

Book spine poetry is always a favorite slice for me. Sifting through book titles on my shelves while capturing a moment in time is a fun challenge. Here are my previous years:  2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016.

Today's poem comes from the announcement from our governor that he will be lifting some of our restrictions. I know many of us are waiting for normal to return.

Small Steps
piecing me together
brave new girl
waiting for normal.


  1. I wasn't sure what a spine poem was and had to read your post. I'm so glad I did. What a creative idea! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Excellent poem. Is the lift on restrictions appropriate? I’ve seen lots of premature pushes to pre-pandemic life.

  3. Perfect titles to create a poem to express your current situation.

  4. Perfect! You have captured that feeling quite well.

  5. So waiting for normal, but I am afraid that it is still not there yet, even if restrictions are lifted.
