city hike

I work with a lovely group of grad students who are studying Integrating the Arts Across the Curriculum. The other day we took a field trip to the Olympic Sculpture Park to celebrate some winter sunshine with creative writing. Here are some things we saw along the way:

A pigeon.

A spool of thread hanging from a lamp post.


And here are some of the things we worked on. A collaborative haiku inspired by gravel:

this gravel is damp

it looks like kitty litter

keep socks and shoes on

And my own haiku inspired by Richard Serra’s Wake:

red, rusty knife edge

cutting a slice of soft sky

peppered with seagulls
