Hello, and welcome to the final 15 Words or Less Poems day (for now, anyway!) (guidelines here). I’m glad you’re here now, and I’m glad you’ve been here. I’ve been posting these photos and inviting you to write poems to them for many years now! If you’re just now finding this and want to use it for yourself or your students, please visit https://www.laurasalas.com/cat-page-15-words-or-less-poems/ to see photos from the past!
I bought a new watercolor app for my phone, and this is one of my favorite pictures (taken on my birthday, I think). So even though it’s not seasonally appropriate, I want to end with fall leaves, which are one of the things in the world that bring me so much awe and happiness.
This image makes me think of several things:
- the beauty of endings
- backpacking trips on the Appalachian Trail in my childhood
And here’s my first draft. This one is to all of you who have visited and become part of this community over the years.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
