My word was LOOSE.
It was very difficult for me to actual relate my word to the line since a line is straight; not curved, no twists or turns, only one direction. So I tried my best to find some objects, sounds and images that were on the line that could relate to the word “loose”. Loose means to be released or let go but it can also mean free. Here are 7 structures I have collected that relate to my word and were still able to be found on the line.
- I collected several items from the line that I thought could represent loose, such as:
Pine needles, leaves, pine cones, feathers, flowers, bark, acorns, broken brick, and rocks.
I see these items as being loose because they were either released, such as the leaves, pine needles, pine cones, and acorns. Or they were detached, such as the broken brick, bark, feathers, and flowers. Also another form of loose could be considered as a loose surface, such as rocks and pebbles, cut grass, dirt, and cracked pavement.
2. I took several pictures that represent my word:
3. I drew a loose sketch of my word:
a bird is very wild and free a.k.a. loose
4. Some sounds that relate to my word that happen on the line would be:
- rain falling
- wind blowing
- birds chirping
- sticks cracking
- bees buzzing
- leaves bustling
5. A poem that relates to my word and the line:
I think this poem can relate to the line as we have traveled it to experience the path, the road no one knows besides the ones assigned to it. But I believe we travel it with such looseness, that each one of us experience it differently and collect different data.
The Road Not Taken
by Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
6. A time log of my word:
- Sept. 19th collected objects
- Sept. 21st took pictures and listened for loose sounds
- Sept. 23rd drew my loose sketch of a free bird and collected poem
7. How line and loose relate:
It was very challenging to relate my word to line as they are complete opposites but when going back to the line I discovered many loose things. Loose can also mean wild and free and more than half of the line was outdoors. During my search for loose I came across several animals such as birds, deer, rodents and insects, where they are very wild and free. Also I came across several objects such as leaves feathers, bark, acorns, rocks etc. that were released or detached, another definition of loose.
