March Musings 20: Ode to the Moon


Have you ever had a day when your inner voice wakes you with a long list of tasks? Quick response: drift into a dreamlike state; take a deep breath; write.

This morning, I am dipping my pen into Michelle H. Barnes' Ditty Challenge that evolved from her interview with poet, Helen Frost. 

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.
You can see additional poems and my first ode poem at Michelle Barnes' padlet.
