Blue Bottle Beauty

Welcome to Day 25 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...

Day 26 - Recycled Wind Chime

Students - For today's drawing, I walked outside, looked around, and let my heart choose. It chose this old bottle-turned-wind chime, a recycled beauty.  Sketching this old thing now new again, I realized that my sketches are wishing for color.  Soon I will buy some watercolors and a black pen with waterproof ink.  Looking at and thinking about this sketch makes me want to go and draw all kinds of recycled things, just like the metal rooster from the other day.  Hmm...I'm seeing a pattern here.

Tomorrow is Poetry Friday, and in addition to a sketch and a poem, I'll be featuring Barbara Nadori's second grade student photographer poets!  Please be sure to come back to read their work.
