WriteOut 10.11.22 Daily Walk Digital Journal: Out My Window

In May, I could not resist this photo of one of our crab apple trees out my kitchen window.

Out my kitchen window in May: a pink blooming crab apple tree

So, with today’s Daily Create prompt:

Daily Create 10.11.2022

I choose to draw it as it is now, filled with crab apples for the mule deer. We daily shake the tree so the apples fall to the ground, and we cannot park our cars beneath the trees, because the deer stand on the vehicles to stretch to reach the apples!

And so, a poem– about Crab Apple Delights

Crab Apple Delights

In spring, so bright
blossoms of pink
In summer, a sight
leaves of deep green
In autumn, fruit bite
mule deer delight!

About WriteOut

These posts are part of WriteOut: a joint venture of by the National Writing Project and the National Park Service to encourage people to get outdoors. This year’s Write Out is STEAM- Powered (STEAM = Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) from October 9-23, 2022. It’s free. It encourages writing and making and sharing about your own experiences with the outdoors in a local event, on your own, or with the Write Out activities you can find here.

This year– besides encouraging people to explore local parks and public spaces through place-based writing– writing about the places and spaces you visit. Notebooks or field journals or lab notebooks — the first tools a scientist uses to observe, describe, illustrate, and annotate the objects, events, and places they study — will help inspire your writing, whether it is a labeled sketch, a poem, an essay, a scrapbook of annotated photos.
