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.
There’s a cool metal horse sculpture at the Anderson Center in Red Wing, MN, where I was at the Minnesota Children’s Book Festival recently. The light was harsh, though, in this only angle I could get of it. The “So You Want to Be an Author” tent and other tents, were practically on the horse’s tail :>) This image makes me think of several things:
- Star Wars — not sure why
- Alexander the Great–did he have Bucephus? I remember reading a story about the great stallion in a Reader’s Digest book as a kid. Oops, I see it’s Bucephalus. I was close!
- The Terminator movie
Here’s my first draft. I was picturing a half machine, half flesh warrior horse!
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count)
