SOL 2016 Day 20: Spring Equinox Haiku

Two Writing Teachers Slice of Life March Challenge 2016
This March, more than 300 teachers have committed to daily writing. If you’d like to read more “slices” (from other teachers and even students), visit:

I would have thought that on a Sunday I'd have the energy to write a long post, but sadly not. So here is a Sunday haiku instead:

outside the window
olive tree's arched branches bloom
inside poetry


  1. Simply and sweet. I love the imagery of poetry blooming inside as the olive tree blooms brilliantly. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This was beautiful. So carefully crafted to be simple, but powerful. The alliteration and imagery were so effective. Happy Spring!

  3. Wonderful word choices and flow!

  4. It always amazes me how much can be said in so few words!

  5. How lovely - certainly paints a picture of spring.

  6. In my part of the world there are olive trees everywhere. Just mentioning them invokes loads of visual images for me. Hope your day was restful.

  7. It makes me feel peaceful! I am not sure if I have seen olive trees "live", but I like the image of inside and outside!
