Today’s Writing 101 Day 10 assignment is as follows: So far, we’ve found inspiration from our own experiences, images, words, and more. Today, let’s quietly observe the world around us and write about what we see.
Find a spot where you can sit and observe for at least 20 minutes: a bench at a park, shopping mall, or museum; from inside your car in a parking lot; or even a place close to home, like your front porch. Ideally, it’s a location where you can watch action and interaction in a setting (between people, wildlife, weather, etc.).
I took my assignment to the beach. My morning Soul Strolls are an integral and much needed part of my day…… They are calming and meditative…….with that said, this assignment was a bit more difficult for me, but hope I’ve done it some justice?!
Walking slowly and quietly along in the morning light,
The contrast between light and dark is evident.
I find a place to sit on the coolness of the sand.
From my resting place I can watch the clouds float by,
And listen while the crescendo of the waves hypnotize.
The briny quality of the air is quite pleasing
to all my senses.
I lose track of time,
Reconnecting with Mother Earth
and with Spirit.
Refreshed and renewed,
I can start my day.
