Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
I took this picture in Scotland when I went in 2008, and I will be going there again soon! This time, though, I’ll pretty much be only in Edinburgh, not out in the highlands or islands, where I snapped this Highland cow/bull/?. It’s hard to get across how immense these creatures are. So. Calm. This image makes me think of:
1) Jack or any pet looking guilty
2) me, arriving at a school visit after driving through a blizzard
3) a velvet dress (that nose!)
And here’s my?first draft.
Shaggy hair against biting winds
Bony horns to settle arguments
Velvet nose for nuzzling you

[Note: In March, I am mostly off the grid. So, please feel free to write, share, and comment, but I will not be able to take part, other than posting these posts. I’ll miss my 15 Words or Less friends–see you in April!]?
