Hello! Thanks for visiting my blog to read my #SpringFlingKidLit contest entry. This event, hosted by Ciara O'Neal and Kaitlyn Leann Sanchez, challenges writers to write a 150-word (or less!) spring-themed piece inspired by a gif. I made my own gif this year using Procreate. Hope you enjoy it!

In the Arizona desert stood
a grumpy old saguaro.
“Cheer up!” said young Rosita.
“Grandpa, spring begins tomorrow!”
He squinted through the sunlight
on his aging, weathered face,
and grumbled, “There’s no springtime
in this hot, forsaken place!”
