This is poem #5 in my Poetry Friday series of poems about books and reading and words as well as poem #317 in my year-long poetry project.
Last weekend, I saw a snowman on the playground at our children's school. He looked so winsome, so still, so alone, that I took his photograph. Later, I looked at the photograph and imagined the life of a school snowman. Ah, to see inside the school!
Students - I've mentioned this before, but photographs are great jumping-off points for writing. You may wish to go out and take pictures with the plan to use them for writing or you might find photographs to write from. Either way, mixing our visual minds with our wordy minds helps us to make new combinations and images and colors we might not find with only one mind.
