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.
We live near our state capitol building, and the other day as we were driving somewhere, I saw the building neatly framed in my rearview mirror and snapped a pic.

- mirror mazes
- glasses (just shopped for new eyeglasses with our younger daughter)

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