Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
For Christmas, we gave our nephew a glow in the dark ant farm, and the ants finally arrived last month during a “warm spell” (aka above freezing). Nifty!?Here are?3 things this photo makes me think of:
1)??the contrails from jets
2)??an underwater fireworks show
3)? the Challenger explosion, which I watched in person as a college student
And here’s my?first draft.
inky coral blooms
rip seas apart
toward their sky

Now it’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS!??(Title doesn’t count toward word count:>)??
P.S. I’m teaching at a Young Authors Conference all day today, so I won’t be able to comment on poems. But I’ll read them all on my phone during lunch:>)
