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.

This image makes me think of several things:

It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS — that is the only rule! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
