Paint chips are amazing. Go on over to the hardware store and load up. I want a second set right now. Devoid of verbs, paint chip names abound with adjectives and nouns. To complete this exercise like the mentor, I transposed one title and added articles, prepositions and the sentence stems from the exercise. This was fun.
Just pile on words. Don’t think. See images. Daydream with words. Wander. Go crazy defining yourself…
What I Am
I am seasoned salt,
the pencil sketch of early September.
The clear vista of my heart
is a stargazer on a September morning.
I am every growing season
keeping promises of a new day on
a distant shore.
I don’t know soft secrets or solemn silence.
I’m a blazing bonfire in the
a summer dragonfly at a lawn party.
I want to be a rolling pebble,
A sand pearl, a hush in beach grass.
