March Musings 17: Summer Sand

Writing challenges are everywhere this month. Writers are enjoying the freedom of playing with words, trying out new formats, and having fun with the craft. The following quote by Tom Romano sustains me as I write. 

"As others take pleasure shaping clay on a potter's wheel or applying paint to canvas, I take pleasure in writing."

Today's Ode Poem Ditty Challenge comes from Michelle H. Barnes and Helen Frost who created a sample poem, Ode to a River, for us.
Choose an object (a seashell, a hairbrush, a bird nest, a rolling pin). It should not be anything symbolic (such as a doll, a wedding ring, or a flag). Write five lines about the object, using a different sense in each line (sight, sound, touch, taste, smell). Then ask the object a question, listen for its answer, and write the question, the answer, or both.
