Hello, and welcome! This is 15 Words or Less Poems, a low-pressure way to wake up your poetry brain (guidelines here), and I’m very glad you’re here.
I got so many beautiful holiday cards this year, and one of my favorites was from Poetry Princess Tanita, who sent one of those amazing pop-up cards I first saw on Shark Tank. Isn’t she gorgeous?
This image makes me think of several things:
- why snail mail connects in a whole different way
- fishing nets
- dragonfly wings
And here’s my first draft, about one of my favorite winter sights: bare tree branches against a clear blue sky.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.) I’m at the dentist this morning, fixing my tooth that broke on a Little Debbie cake recently :>( I will comment on poems as soon as I can:>)
