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 an itty-bitty birdie I spied while walking around the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.
This image makes me think of several things:
- the Christmas ornaments of birds that clipped on that my Mom loved
- a kids’ climbing structure
- a birdcage
And here’s my first draft. It came out seeming a bit more melancholy than I intended, but first drafts don’t pay much attention to my intentions!
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
