Writing format idea from Chris at Reading Amid the Chaos wrote a post titled Spring #SOL17 March 11


Summer is approaching
Writing reports, end of school
Streams of words never ending ticks
I wonder if they are all read
Why would we have to share hard work
with a letter of the alphabet, a mark or number?

Summer is approaching
Looking forward to the holidays
Mallorca here we come
Study, study and complete this quest
Graduation for tedious swatting

Summer is approaching
Birthdays, mine and theirs
Oh mine, a big one bound to be celebrated
Two of them, celebrating together
Always miraculous and a very enticing celebration
Oh Dad’s too just before school, maybe a weekend
away will do

Summer is approaching
Shopping for school
Lists, lists and many more lists
All shot up in just a year, shoes and clothes
still almost new,
Have to be shared for they need to be reused

Summer is approaching
Some relaxation, will seek it, I hope I find it
In the air or elsewhere!


  1. Summer's approaching! Yes, it's true. I have a snowstorm to get through first, but I am looking forward to summer too!

  2. I feel like summer is a hundred miles away as I sit here awaiting the blizzard and missing that hour of sleep. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. I do need this as a goal, especially with the snow falling outside.

  4. I love the idea of summer coming near (especially as a Nor'easter approaches my part of the country)! Loved the format of this beautiful poem, Juliette.

  5. Awwww - I love your slice! I'm glad my slice got your writing juices going! HOORAY FOR SUMMER!
