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.
My regulars, I’ve missed you the past two weeks! I was on a weeklong school visit one week, a mini writing retreat last week, and now I’ve just returned home from the Texas Library Association conference in Austin. Whew! It’s good to be back:>)
I know I post a lot of tree images, and I’m REALLY trying to offer more variety here. But…I adore trees. I took this photo in the monuments area of Washington, DC.
This image makes me think of several things:
- showing up in completely the wrong clothes for something
- hall of mirrors
- holding on
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.)
