My Favorite Warm Up Exercise

My favorite warm up exercise is a List Poem. It is also a great way to get the creative juices flowing if I am stuck with a blank page. It lets me concentrate on a single thought or a multitude of things going on at the same time. It is actually quite fun and productive at the same time. I can do so much with this and it can be as short or long as I want. Recently I thought I would try this again to see what I would come up with. Below is what I came up with. I smile at the memory:

In the distance, I see birds

fluttering acrobats

racing against the wind.

Across the yard

leaves skip along the grass,

playing tag with morning breeze.

In golden rays between branches,

wet tendrils of a spider’s home

waving as if saying farewell.

I reach out wanting to touch it.

A spider scurries for darkness.

I smile in wonder.4d9580cc-fa80-4fc2-a6ea-6f8ad5dff1f7
