#50PreciousWords

Another contest!!! This one is hosted by the wonderful Vivian Kirkfield and it’s a real challenge: write a story for children in less than 50 words!

You read that correctly. 50 words! I actually came up with a couple. I focused on conveying snapshots of fun childhood experiences and it was a delightful and energizing exercise. But, since we can only submit one, here is mine:

SPRING PUDDLES
by Nicole Loos Miller

Grey clouds
Pitter
Patter 
Puddles!

Hop,
Splish.

Jump,
Splash.

Stomp,
SPLOSH!

Raining here
But sunshine there

Gasp! 

Red
Orange
Yellow
Green
Blue
Indigo
Violet

Sigh.

Perfect.

A thankful twirl. 
Celebratory swirl.
Hop. Hop. Spin. 

BOOM!

Quick!
Run, dash, splash!
Whew.
Made it.
