Happy Poetry Friday! Autumn has fallen over the ridge. My poem this week is inspired by an autumn path I stumbled across here on the ridge. I hope you enjoy it and that you'll stop by Jane's spot www.raincitylibrarian.ca/ for more poetry offerings!
I am all for taking the road less traveled, and I'm never disappointed. One early fall evening, I came upon this sunlit path. It made me stop right in my tracks. The image of the path with draping goldenrod and the friendly forest trees, evoked a calming sensation within my writer's soul. I was instantly inspired to write a poem based on this visual image. I hope to share this poem with one of our Poetry Friday friends, Carol Varsalona. She has graciously invited poets to contribute a digital poem offering to her Autumn Ablaze Gallery. Be sure to check out many more image poems there!
Invitation to Write:
Try taking a path you have never followed before. Your path might be real or imagined. Whatever notion comes to mind, follow it. May its images and words inspire you to write.
Welcome! I'm Kiesha Shepard, and I have a love for writing and the teaching of writing. Whispers From the Ridge is a place where I can share my words and ideas for teaching writing. It's also a place for you to find inspiration for writing the words inside of you. I invite you into my world of writing as I capture the whispers from the ridge.
