Doodle

Writing Challenge: Oct 3, 2017

Prompt: Spend some time doodling for 5-10 minutes  and write something inspired by your doodle.

A bare tree drops its last leaves into the swift, sharp, swirling breeze.

At its feet, above the roots, the growing pile of leave grows.

In black and white, my sketch takes shape-

But in my mind the colors are bright

A celebration of the season’s beauty.

I draw winter squash, walnuts, apples and pears.

I begin to write the alphabet in cursive and straight-hand-

With right hand and left.

I begin to absently-mindedly craft abstract drawings

Of lines, swirls, spikes.

I fill the page with black ink of little value-

while I should be taking notes in class.
