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.
At Duluth Harbor last week, we got to watch a TON of sailboats come through the canal (as well as my favorites, some 1000-footers). This image makes me think of several things:
- How fun boat names are
- Why does having a boat sound like so much fun but seems like it always ends up being too much work in reality?
- Tweety Bird, of course!
And here’s my first draft. I realized after I made this that the title should be Tweety Bird’s Escape–much more dramatic. Oh, well. That’s why it’s a first-draft exercise:>)
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
