16 Simultaneous Events

Simultaneous Events

We’re going to talk about events that happen at the same time, or happen in the same place over a passage of time, or events that happen to a person over their lifetime or some combination.

Some examples:

The pure contralto sings in the organ loft.

The carpenter dresses his plank … the tongue of his foreplane whistles its wild      ascending lisp.

The married and unmarried children ride home to their Thanksgiving dinner…

The pilot seizes the king-pin, he heaves down with a strong arm.

The mate stands braced in the whaleboat lance and harpoon are ready…

Walt Whitman

A man is going up the ladder, and he has something in his arms.

The birds are so glad to meet each other, chattering on a limb.

The man was carrying a ladder, and, he had something with ashes in it.

The man stopped to write a letter.

I looked down and it was so beautiful on the ground, it was summer.

The crow passed by and he was hollering.

A bird came by and stopped and lit on the limb and started to whistle.

We’re cleaning the house, the windows, the floors.

I saw the Africans swimming in the river.

I see a beautiful ship coming from the Atlantic Ocean.

In Jamaica and the West Indies we’re all playing cricket.

I’m going to Hollywood to get a drink of wine.

We’re having a big wedding in Brazil.

It’s coming spring now and the bears are coming out of the jungle to an open

place in the sun.
