Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
This week’s image makes me think of:
2) Bat wings
3) Wading in Lake Superior and feeling the sharp rocks right through my water shoes
And here’s my poem first draft:
need gentle things:
Come, fuzzy socks,
for splintered docks
and jagged rocks.

Oops, I cut it all I could and still sort of maintain the rhythm, and I’m at 16 words (titles don’t count:>) Oh well. SOME people (you know who you are!) have gone over egregiously in the past, so I’m just going to give myself that one extra word! :>)
Now,?what does this picture make YOU think of??Take any quick idea and jot down a 15 Words or Less poem. It doesn’t have to rhyme or describe this picture. This is just a jumping-off spot. And this is just a fun exercise–don’t worry about creating a polished poem right now!
