Merry Christmas if you celebrate Christmas. And whether you do or don’t, I’m glad you’re here! Our day has turned a little topsy-turvy, and I don’t know whether I’ll be able to stop back in later or not, but I’ll try. I hope you have a joyful time, whatever your day holds! And if you generally only come by on Thursdays, please do look at my card from Monday, which goes out to every one of you. Thanks:>)
Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
Here’s Sylvia Vardell rocking her poetry tights at NCTE. Did I mention that she actually chose which poems would be on them? How cool is that? This image makes me think of:
1) wearing your heart on your sleeve–or on your tights!
2) a wonderful alternative to tattoos!
3) a kid who sees people’s secrets written on them like tattoos
And here’s my?first draft, celebrating Sylvia and her magical enthusiasm for poetry. I decided to do an over-the-top ode/zeno:>)

Now it’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS!??(Title doesn’t count toward word count:>) Yes, I am aware my poem is 17 words. I wanted to write a zeno, and, dang it, I could get it close to, but not at, 15 words. Sigh. So, as a Christmas bonus, I’m giving everyone 20 words today. That’s right–20!
