Welcome to Day 10 of Drawing Into Poems, my daily drawing/seeing/writing study into poetry. You can read more about this month-long project here on my April 1 post. Feel free to read the books with me, and pull out your own sketchbook and jewelry box full of metaphor too...

This wooden horse once belonged to my Great Aunt Kay, a woman who loved to travel. She would always come home from each trip with two dolls: one for my sister Heidi and one for me. I remember playing with these beautiful dolls, putting their shoes on and off. playing with their small beaded necklaces. We would compare our new dolls each time, and someone always got the prettier one. But the doll I remember most was not fancy at all...she was rather plain, with a black vest that was easy to take off and easy to put back on again. I remember lying by the heater in my bedroom just playing with that doll and her friends for hours.
Well, look at that.
I just found a whole new writing idea from this drawing.
