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.
Back a couple of weeks ago, game night had a toy theme, and I came across this pic of our daughter, Annabelle, with one of her favorite childhood toys: the Bumble Ball. Anybody remember those? (And Janet Fagal, doesn’t she look like your beautiful granddaughter? Every time you share pics, I’m struck by how much alike they look!) This image makes me think of several things:
- model of an atom
- how funny your voice sounds when you’re shivering or shaking
- kids and cardboard boxes/castles/forts
And here’s my first draft. This didn’t actually happen, but I was just playing with the -mble sound:>)
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
PLEASE NOTE: I’m still off the grid, so I won’t be able to comment. Wi-fi willing, I’ll Like your poems in the Comments, so you’ll at least be able to tell I read them. :>)
