Day One

List ten things you've seen in the last 24 hours. Use all of them in a poem. (from Kelli Russell Agodon)



Take the spark of periwinkle
winking in the afternoon light
the thump of basketball on asphalt
pounding the chalky rainbow into dust
Take the sweet buttered toast
and the soft of wilted daffodils
the pages of a book wrinkled with use
Take the scent of garlic and broccoli rabe
the jump of that fluffy dog
and pour it all
into your blue coffee mug
to welcome the dawn.
