It turns out a collage was the best way to illustrate my morning walk. I was impatient, trying watercolor, drawing, and nearly let it go until I spotted some paper bits that resonated with the theme. Lucky papers.
Rather than label it with words, I chose one symbol, some shorthand (the line and dot in the lower right). One word, do you know what it is? I know two people who might . . .

I don't know shorthand but my mom does. I'll ask her later today when I see her.... can't wait to find out. Love the birch-y paper.... a favorite wedding cake design of mine has a birch finish. The poem is charming!

Pulled out an instruction/practice book for reference. I took shorthand in high school and enjoyed it, got pretty good at it, but have since lost most of it. It's like knowing a code. I may want to revisit it, it would come in handy when taking notes during interviews!

The word is "morning." Nicely done!

You are right! And of course one of the two I thought would know!
