Sparkling drops of dew
shine upon the morning grass
each drop a new world
I just returned from a trip to North Carolina. It is impressive to me how green everything is there. So different from the desert of Arizona. I love seeing the dew on the grass on my morning walk.
Stop what you are doing right now and look down. What do you see? This spot where you are standing at this moment is your world. If you were an ant what do you think it would feel like to be in this world. If I were an ant crawling in this grass, I'd be having my morning shower. I'd be waking to a world of sunshine and getting ready to fight traffic to get to school. It might be along walk. Can you write a poem, in the ant's voice about being in your landscape?
Today write a poem about where you are. Have fun.
