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.
My sister Patty has always been the artist in our family. She is crafty and artistic, though she hasn’t had much time for any creative outlets other than teaching in recent years. Lately, though, she’s been coloring. What I love is that she colors postcards and sends them out. So occasionally, among the junk mail and bills, I get a little piece of beauty and love in the mailbox! This image makes me think of several things:
- whale tattoos
- what a whale trapped on a piece of paper would think
- what if the sea were made of ink?
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.)
