Writer's Digest April PAD Challenge 2016/ Show Me Your Doodle

Show Me Your Doodle

doodle          drawn without thinking                               doodler

one who doodles          a quick sketch                              rough draft

not ready for prime time      for the artist alone        the artist takes paper

and drawing tool          and draws without thought of finished work

a doodle          is often a preparatory sketch             silent poetry/without words

the artist might doodle with pencil        crayon                      pen and ink

charcoal drawing                      scribe                        scribble

scribble-scrabble                       scrawl                       scratch

daub                                           doodle                      watercolor drawing

a preparatory drawing                silent poetry             elephants do it

monkeys do it               sometimes birds do it             everybody does it

while thinking of something else      genuine               authentic

often best when artist has left the room       pure         lines are expressive

no longer selfconscious      honest          closest to the way the artist thinks

part of the visual language       today the doodle may be the art          true

like a finger print                       unique                         his alone

Doodles are really cool. And life should be seen from that perspective, where everything is fun and joyful. Very well written, and thanks for sharing!

I love this description of "silent poetry".........."part of the visual language". The sounds of the words you chose are delightful to read, moving down the page. Cool write, Annell.
