writing 101: observation (#10): Under the Yarn Storm Tree

under yarn storm* tree

fall scuds around me

leaf tornados

scour mulch

drips of rain

ping-pong off

my umbrella

library patrons

scurry with books

tucked in plastic bags

teenagers saunter

as teenagers do

looking cool

[or trying to]

in the lobby

flirting

prancing

smartphone

every ready

for a scroll,

a pix,

a squeal.

      Thank you Suzanne. Assignment 10 had us observing the world around us, recording different scenarios, and choosing scene to use as our post. I often sit and watch the world go by, so this was a pleasant piece of home work.

      Isn’t it amazing! There were various places in the town yarn bombed over the course of the summer, including some staged to raise money for local causes.
