Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines are here)!
Happy New Year!
I mentioned earlier this week that I’ll be making some pretty major changes to the blog this year, but 15 Words or Less will not be going anywhere:>) I will be trying to increase the ways educators use it, but we will remain a community of poets, sharing our work and rev-starting our brains on Thursdays:>)
Here are 3 things this photo makes me think of:
1) Halloween costumes–I’m not sure why, but that’s what comes to mind!
3) cookie cutters
And here’s my first draft!
Nan Khatai: Cookies From Home
cardamom, ghee, cashews–
a moment of stillness
while all of India
melts on my tongue
