Happy Thanksgiving! 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.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you who celebrate this U.S. holiday. I firmly believe it’s always time to be grateful, but it’s also nice to be reminded to give thanks. I’m thankful to all of you who visit this blog–regularly or occasionally. I’m especially thankful when I meet you in person, because it makes the connection so much deeper. It was just heartwarming to see many 15 Words or Less and Poetry Friday friends at NCTE last week. I’ll be sharing photos and such soon.
Here’s a pic from my recent trip to Florida:
This image makes me think of several things:
- Sometimes the unexpected is something to celebrate–I do NOT like palm trees, generally. But this one made me smile.
- a donut tree–yes, please!
- braids with beads in them
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.)
