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.
Here’s another photo from our trip to Cyprus. This lovely gent lives at the same camel park as the camel I shared a couple of weeks ago.
This image makes me think of several things:
- that song “The Night Has a Thousand Eyes”
- the peacocks that lived near my house when I was a kid
- shutters (the sound the feathers made, a gentle clattering sound, reminded me of shutters opening and closing)
And here’s my first draft. Did you know a group of peacocks is called a muster?
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
NOTE: We moved on Monday, and I likely still don’t have a workspace, wi-fi, or my sanity. I will read every poem but likely won’t be able to comment.
