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.
Although the day trip itself was dreadful, one of the most beautiful things we saw in France was Mont Saint Michel, an amazing ancient abbey built on a rock outcropping in the tidal flats off the Normandy coast. You’re just driving along through flat, agricultural lands, and then you see this on the horizon. Magical! This image makes me think of several things:
- God’s or a giant’s building blocks
- people who paint “en plein air” — outside where anyone can watch them–talk about intimidating!
- Walt Disney World–can’t help it. Grew up in Florida.
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.)
