It’s March and the Slice of Life Challenge. Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for providing space for writers.
March is filled with fun challenges. Actually safe to say that if you look hard enough there will be a challenge for every month to embrace creativity and push the envelope.
On Facebook, my friend, Laura Shovan, does an annual poetry writing event in February. It’s being held in March this year. The theme is food. Poems exists in the kitchen and on the table. Yesterday was BREAD. My shadorma for today is about the exquisite and can’t-find-them-anywhere-on-west-coast bagels.
I had the lucky fortune to visit Utopia Bagels with my niece when I visited last October.

each hand rolled
fresh doughy pillows
