Sidewalk into Story

Take a walk with a cell phone.  Record five images. Observe items on the sidewalk. Look right. Look left. Look up. Look back. Add sounds and scents. Play with illusions.

Begin with the photos below to warm up.
Try one word descriptions. Notice word rhythms.
Add action verbs.

It is rope or a snake
that wraps your ankle
or slithers to your waist?

An illusion

Texture of paws
and retreat?

What's written in the note
or is it an elephant
about to trumpet?

Don't forget to look up.

Start your own and weave discoveries into poems or stories.
