Welcome to 15 Words or Less Poems Day! Are you ready to wake up your poetry brains with our weekly exercise (guidelines here)?
Sorry for the confusion last week–I had the settings to not allow comments (accidentally). We should be all good today, though! Thank you for your poems and good thoughts last week. My school visit was awesome (waving to the Poetry Club and Kim Doele at Wealthy Elementary)!
Addendum: Somehow, and thank you, cindyb, for telling me, last week’s comments are with THIS post! Aaaarrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggh. I think I must have just done this post as a new version of that one, instead of cloning it and making a new one. Oi. Last week’s post is gone (though your poems are still here, in the comments). Please post your new poems for today in the comments, too. Some weeks, when I’m traveling, I probably should just skip 15 Words or Less. Too much rushing leads to…this!
OK, here’s this week’s picture. I took it on my way home last week at O’Hare Airport as I raced from the B concourse to the F concourse to catch my connecting flight. It’s actually the ceiling, but my phone put the pic on its side when I uploaded it here, and I like it better that way!
This image makes me think of:
- the throat of a huge, alien, metal snake
- being inside Space Mountain at Disney World with the lights turned on
- sleeping pods/bunk beds of the future (well, the future is here, but I haven’t yet tried a sleeping pod)
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)
