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.

Describe an interesting time in your life when lots of events were happening all at once.




Describe an interesting place where you lived or worked and what happened there over a passage of several years.




Describe the things that happen here at Regency Park that happen in the morning, during the day, or at night.




Now choose your favorites from all three of these and using your notebook combine them into a list however it feels right for you to do so.
