Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)! This is a closeup pic, and?here are 3 things this photo makes me think of: 1)?Shampoo commercial 2)?Rope swing 3) Hangman’s noose And here’s my first draft. I had fun with my Things To Do poem last week and decided to go with that again–dang, my formatting isn’t there. I wanted that second line indented–a lot!–to mimic the back and forth of the swing.
Things To Do If You’re a Rope Swing
Wear a bristly jacket.
Leap to the sky.
Float safely back to earth.

NOTE: I’m driving five hours (hopefully weather won’t slow me down) to Iowa City, IA, today, to be part of the One Book Two Book Festival! I won’t be able to comment on poems today, although I will read through them all once I get checked in to my room. They will be my reward:>) Now it’s your turn! Have fun? and stick to? 15 WORDS OR LESS!??(Title doesn’t count toward word count:>)?
