Sunset Walk: Observations
Happy Poetry Friday! Thanks for visiting the ridge this week. For more of the poetry party, head over to Carol's space Beyond LiteracyLink.
Over Labor Day weekend, I took some time to walk about the ridge. I enjoy observing all the gifts that the natural world has to offer! Our observations can surprise us and wonder us. Having a notebook brimming full of observations can inspire so much writing!
Listen to my poem:
Invitation to Write:
Writers are observers of the world around them. Take some time this weekend to take a walk and record your observations. Open your senses and capture all the life around you! Let your observations lead you to many new writing possibilities. A simple walk can do a writer good!

I'd love to go out walking with you, Kiesha! And your poem shows me all the reasons why! I love "skate the sky with parachute wings"!

Kiesha, what a lovely poem with great language. You painted a beautiful scene on your walk. Would you like to pair this with a photo and create a digital inspiration for #TheArtofSummering Gallery?

There are so many lines to love--martins skating the sky with parachute wings, that dragon's eye.

"They skate the sky with parachute wings," love this line Kiesha, very transporting and whimsical. I've been watching some palmated piping plovers on our beach as they pass through enroute to their warmer winter home in South America. Thanks!
