Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
I just got a nifty little macro-lens for my iPhone. The other day, I was filling our onion powder spice jar, using a funnel. When I set the funnel down on the stove, tip up, I saw there was this little rim of onion powder, and it looked kind of statically charged. So I grabbed my phone. This is a little blurry–I’m still figuring out the best circumstances to use this little lens under. But…isn’t that cool? This image makes me think of:
1) a snowflake
2) fake eyelashes
3) an eclipse
And here’s my?first draft.
A Sad Day in February
What winter storm
can make you cry?
An onion blizzard

I am holed up with Lisa Bullard today working on a Children’s Writer Insider Guide about writing rhyming picture books! Wheee! I will pop in throughout the day to read your poems. If you’d like to try writing your poems in rhyme today, I’d appreciate the extra inspiration. But they still have to be 15 Words or Less. (And it’s totally fine to not write in rhyme, too.)
Now it’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS!??(Title doesn’t count toward word count:>)??
