Early Morning Lists!

It's 2:33 in the morning and what am I doing? I'm thinking about words...what else? Below is a list of words that I use to help me paint an even better picture of a place I'm trying to describe...yes ONE place again. Look at my word list and chose five words to help you add more to your description.

If you're just joining us, describe ONE place (setting) that's in your mind's eye. By the way, if you're a teacher or a homeschooler, this is a fun way to teach prepositions. If you're a writer, these words will make you better writers. Most of all, just have fun. Do not worry about grammar with these exercises. Just wallow in the joy of what these words can conjure up in your imagination!

My list of words for you:
about
above
across
after
against
along
among
around
at
before
behind
below
beneath
beside
between
by
down
during
except
for
from
in
in front of
inside
instead of
into
like
near
of
off
on
onto
on top of
out of
outside
over
past
since
through
to
toward
under
underneath
until
up
upon
with
within
without

I'll use my list and go first!

Underneath the umbrella of trees
within the pasture fences
in front of the old door
between the gate and the mud puddle
among the sweet clovers

Your turn! Please share what you come up with. Coincidentally, you may have already used some of these words. Hmmm....I wonder!

across the green mountains and blue seas
without the permission of the gatekeeper
between towering mountains
behind the hanging vines
towards white sandy beaches

Above the earth.
Across the never ending yard.
Against the tall trees.
Through the wooded area.
By the cool stream.

Through the broken fence
Down the narrow path
Among the tall weeds
Across the dried up creek
Behind the withered barn

Okay...these are all really good!!!!

Among the birds
Above the green grass
Beside the bumpy bark
On top of the cotton net
Near the love of my life

DURING the long and tedious ride across the Bridge (the golden gate bridge) http://travelingsuitcase.blogspot.com/2009/07/golden-gate-in-pictures.html

AMONG the Navy and Merchant Marine Memorials (and cute sailor statue there at the bridge)

BEFORE the lighten struck the bare and cracked earth.

Underneath the rocky overhang, I took shelter

Inside my head feels like someone using a jack hammer.

1. The skies above
2. The grass beneath
3. Small buildings on top of the low hills
4. The gentle breezes blowing around
5. Behind the hills

Very-very-far-away-enough road.
Below my driveway, wildlife highway.
Among pilfering Vervets, cinema of nature, morning song symphony.
During thundering convergence of triple storms. Scent of mother earth; dehydrated; thirsty.
From heart beat of Africa,
To nurturing of my soul.
