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.
If you didn’t see my note earlier, sorry about last week! Major blog/Wordpress fail, and I lost several posts. Boo. And I was traveling without my laptop and couldn’t do anything about it. I hope you all had fabulous Thanksgivings!
I took this picture of a bike rack while walking with my daughter on my birthday!
This image makes me think of several things:
- the bike rack at my childhood library (I rode there at least a couple times a week)
- zoo bars
- the cheese slicer with the wire
And here’s my first draft. Even though I am mostly silent when I go to a library, it always somehow feels like a place I go to to not only hear/read other people’s voices but also to express mine, even if it’s only through my reading choices.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
