It has been a wonderful month, gone by so quickly. Thank you Tara, Anna, Dana, Stacey, Betsy and Beth and all the bloggers who have contributed to Two Writing Teachers Slice of Life Challenge 2014. I hope many will keep slicing weekly–look for you tomorrow. Enjoy the month’s final slices here.
Yeah WE did it! Number 31 of 31! Right here. I say we because without the community this wouldn’t be. The comments were so wonderful. I wanted to explore the comments, and see what I might find.
Found poems take existing texts and refashion them, reorder them, and present them as poems. The literary equivalent of a collage, found poetry is often made from newspaper articles, street signs, graffiti, speeches, letters, or even other poems.

virtual me enjoyed
the power of the small
“check I relate”
so many “what ifs”
real work, naturally, like everything else

The pains of growing
the comfort of knowing

discipline and team.
What a treasure
tender lasting memory
we would not likely ever forget
a lump in my throat
thoughts and actions mingled and changed
