The prompt for July 8, 2015 was Clean Slate. “Explore the room you’re in as if you’re seeing it for the first time. Pretend you know nothing. What do you see? Who is the person who lives there?”
What is in the room, in addition to my computer? Here is a small list.
– One chair and windows
– Pictures on the walls and shelves
– Books, music, poetry journals
– The Psalms
– A journal that cost 50 cents, that we bought at Manitowoc Public Library (we paid a dollar)
In June, I began copying my poems about the language arts in the journal. Perhaps this project will grow to become a chapbook to share with libraries and nursing homes.
