My Bio Poem #SOL19 Day 2/31

I am once again participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge for the month of March.  This is the fourth year I have joined the community of writers over at Two Writing Teachers to take up this challenge for 31 consecutive days of writing. I know it will be hard work but the growth will be immeasurable. Follow along!

My Bio Poem

It’s day two of the month long challenge and I thought I’d introduce myself to this community of writers through a format as mentioned on the padlet of slice ideas from Christie Wyman. Thank you Christie  and to for the template.


Giving, artistic, natural

Mother of three, grandmother to four

Who loves being outdoors, learning, and creativity

Who experienced deep grief at the loss of her soul mate – husband

Who fears snakes, thunderstorms, and being alone

Has parented three young, successful, giving and caring adults

Dreams of traveling to places near and far, and hiking across countrysides

Lives by a nature-filled lake

  1. I’m loving getting to know slicers more through all the “bio-” poems and “I’m from…” poems. It gives another lens to use when I read March slices. I like how you bookended your poem with your name.

  2. I really loved the honesty and vulnerability in your poem. Making my own writing public for this challenge has challenged me to share my thoughts honestly, which is kind of scary. Thank you for the inspiration.

  3. A very real sense of celebration and loss, in so few lines; such power and honesty. Your photo makes me think on how life is a journey – one must prepare to go out to meet it in all its facets.Your smile -! It leaves me with joy. 🙂

  4. What a great idea. I love using this format with my students, so why not use it as a way to connect us to one another. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Happy for my March reconnections. I love the simplicity of your poem, but the depth of the shares. I knew some of it about you, although not that there were FOUR grandchildren. Looking forward to hearing more about them.

  6. This is a wonderful way to share a life. I feel the loss of your soul mate. And I hope you’ll not just dream of traveling but make those dreams happen.
