Word Pictures

Recently my wife and I attended a poetry reading at the 3 Rivers Food Co-op in Fort Wayne.

This is the second time for us, and we don't do it because we enjoy hearing people read their poems.

It's just to be supportive of a friend who is a published poet and was reading.

But somewhere along the way as my mind was wandering, I noticed the way certain phrases were creating word pictures in my mind.

Take a moment and read each of the following slowly, and pause before you read the next one.

Grassy Knoll

September 11th

Hot Buttered Popcorn

BBQ Ribs

Christmas Eve

Road Trip

I could go on, but what are some phrases in your life that create a vivid word picture in your mind?
