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.
Thank you for your continued kindness and support regarding my mom’s passing. I wish my dad was online and could have the kind of warm, embracing community that I have.
I attended a drum corps show in Farmington, MN, a couple of weeks ago, and I finally got to see the Minnesota Brass show. This year’s show is Now Boarding, all about the early years of popular commercial flight. I’ve been very uninvolved this season, with little time or energy to volunteer. But it was so great to see people and enjoy a night of music and performances and catching up. This image makes me think of:
- a party of fireflies
- a parade
- a candelabra
And here’s my first draft.
Blanket statement for July/August. Hope you’re having a wonderful summer. Mine is overwhelmingly busy and emotional. When you Comment, I get an email, and I will be doing my best to read every poem you guys write. But my availability over the summer to comment on each poem will be limited. I hope you’ll write because you love it and enjoy this community. Please know I value your participation, even if I am not able to respond much this July and August.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count)
