Inspired by Nature

DP #60: Inspired by Nature

Write a piece (poem, flash fiction, etc…) using the following image: a smashed flower on the sidewalk.

Take ten minutes.

Today, we are going to explore nature as a means of creative written expression. We’ll be using

Thoreau’s model of nature writing

  • Keep a Journal.
  • Record Personal Observations of Nature.
  • Express Personal Thoughts, Feelings, and Ideas.
  • Show How All of Life Is Connected and Interdependent.
  • Be Positive, Warm and Open to All Life.
  • Begin Now.

As we explore the school’s natural surroundings, we will also take A Haiku Walk.

Let’s go out and enjoy nature today!
