Slice of Life/Day in a Poem (Day 19): Little Critters

(This is for the Slice of Life challenge, hosted by Two Writing Teachers. We write on Tuesdays about the small moments in the larger perspective and then all through March — every single day  …  You write, too.)

It crawled across the keyboard
after crawling off the dog –
a sure sign of Spring
to make us sick: a tick.

Peace (creepy crawling).

  1. This makes my skin crawl! Also brings back memories of my Mom removing a tick from behind my ear, burning the tick, and then flushing! Hope those darn ticks stay away from your pup!
