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.
One thing we did while visiting our daughter in Cyprus was to to a few different beaches. The (Mediterranean Sea) water was still too chilly (even for us Minnesotans) for actual swimming, but it was plenty hot. Oh, we did get in when we rented a “pedal boat with slide.” Hehe.
We had a blast all sliding down that slide, hanging off the back of the boat, etc.
Other than that, though, we mostly just enjoyed looking at the beautiful beaches. The top picture above is Aphrodite’s Rock, where Aphrodite is said to have been born. It is a stunningly beautiful setting, and I can totally imagine the Goddess of Love choosing that spot to exit the sea. This image makes me think of several things:
- a frog waiting to kiss Princess Aphrodite and turn into a Prince
- a beach that has bones instead of sand/rocks
- clouds catching on fire
And here’s my first draft.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
