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 glad you’re here.
Here’s a picture I took while my husband and I were walking our beagle down by the lake. These barren branches leaning over the water caught my eye, but the pic was…eh. So I used a filter to reverse it.
This image makes me think of:
- Antarctica (ooh, and The Thing, an excellent horror movie set there)
- my sister Patty’s darkroom when I was about 9, and I would look at film and reverse images
- when lightning makes the world go all strobe light-y
And here’s my first draft.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count)
