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 arrived in London very late at night, took the tube, and then walked to our flat in Canary Wharf. When I saw this jumble of red and green lights in the dark in the distance, I thought, “How the heck are we going to get across that street?” Got closer and discovered it was a sculpture, so I made sure to get a photo in the daylight!
This image makes me think of several things:
- Snow White in London
- stoplights made from actual trees–wouldn’t that be less stressful?
- how being somewhere new is always an adventure, even when you’re lugging luggage around in the dark and you’re really tired
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.)
