Daffodils #SOL19 Day 8/31

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 in taking up this challenge of writing for 31 consecutive days.  I know it will be hard work but the growth will be immeasurable. Feel free to follow along!




Grace the table with bright sunshine.

Petals unfurl before my own eyes.

Takes me away from winter grays.

Producing smiles each time I stare.

Cheapest way to get to spring.

Best ten dollars spent this week.

Today I am attempting to capture the joy of daffodils through a series of six word memoirs. It was a fun way to think about sequence, rhythm, and word choice.

Have you tried writing a six word memoir?

  1. It’s so meaningful to stick with a topic and try it out different ways. I had a teacher comment that she told a student he had already written about β€”β€”- before and to pick a different topic. I wondered about how his knowledge of this might have expanded his craft.

  2. I love six word memoirs. Yours on the daffodils are as fresh and lovely and hopeful as the promise of spring itself – not to mention the zingers at the end!

  3. I’ve been considering playing around with 6 word stories, but never thought to combine them into a series. What a great idea! It’s time for me to head to Trader Joe’s to freshen up my supply of daffodils. Color burst energizes doesn’t empty wallet!

  4. I love your 6 word memoirs. I try these from time to time, but yours really capture the essence of daffodils…spring beauties, happy faces, spirit lifted

  5. I love 6 word memoirs but never thought to turn them into a poem. You did it amazingly. Thank you for the idea and for the slice. Spring has to be coming 😊

  6. We must buy our daffodils from the same place!! My house looks the same. I love the poem. It had a great rhythm and made me laugh. My favorite is: Cheapest way to get to spring. Thank you
