(The Slice of Life Challenge in March is hosted by Two Writing Teachers as way to encourage teachers-as-writers. You can join in, if you want. There is also a monthly call for Slices on Tuesdays. You can write then, too)
Just as I saw him on his bike, and thought, there’s the first sign of Spring, Jim, a retired neighbor and friend and avid bike wanderer, pedals past me with a smile and a hand pointing at the patch of purple crocus, shouting: “The first signs of Spring!”
Peace (rolling forward),
Kevin! Crocuses with petals as a sign within a pedaling sign of spring!
Clever sentence. Happy spring!
Love how much you can fit into one sentence! I wish I had a bike riding habit. Definitely was bolstered by my own peek at some crocus.
So many signs of spring…and you managed to fit them into one sentence!
I love the cyclical nature of this sentence and your deft use of alliteration. Your day-in-a-sentences are crafty marvels! Happy Spring!
