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.
Here’s another pic from our trip to Cyprus. Larnaca has a couple of salt lakes. They’re near the coast, and from the airplane, you could see how it’s probably ocean water that got cut off eventually by sandbars or land forming around them. They’re very close the the Mediterranean Sea. Anyway, all the rocks are covered with this shell of crunchy white salt. When you walk, you just hear crunch, crunch. Apparently people go and gather salt there at certain times of year to use in their homes.
This image makes me think of several things:
- Gulliver’s Travels (looks like there are tiny people running around on the sand!)
- bicycling on the moon
- cloning bicycles
And here’s my first draft. I actually had a thought of writing a poem using different bike-related words, like wheels, and spoke, and brake, and tired. Hehe. But it didn’t come quickly enough, and this is a fast first-draft challenge, so I moved on to something different.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
