They Don't Notice {Slice of Life Story Challenge}

two furry friends
wait patiently 
each morning

sometimes a bit barky
sometimes a bit sleepy
sometimes a bit happy

they don't notice
it's a weekend, no school
ready and eager 
we head out the door

Thank you Two Writing teachers for hosting this Slice of Life Story Challenge.


  1. Love how your poem brings us to your weekend morning. I hope the morning walk was pleasant.

  2. I've often wondered if my dogs know what day of the week it is, or if they have our schedule memorized. If they do, I'm sure things like school vacations really mess them up!

  3. Got to love those faithful furry friends!

  4. Mandy, we write in different time zone. You are late night and I am dawn. I just caught up on your slices. I love your poetry, but I also like that you are doing more narrative this year. You capture your classroom and inner reflections really well. I look forward to reading your slices this month. Thanks
