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.
I love public art. When I walk through a building or a square and there are interesting and unexpected shapes, forms, and colors, I feel happy.
This image makes me think of several things:
- a piano the Jetsons might play
- paper quilling (an art form my sister did when I was a kid and which has been making a comeback the past few years)
And here’s my first draft. I ended up thinking of sound waves and how what we say, good or bad, lingers…And I got the kindest email this morning, as I wait here in the hospital for Randy to have shoulder surgery. It was from another writer, someone I don’t know, telling me what my books and blog posts, etc., for writers have done for her. It was just lovely. What a spirit-lifter on an anxious morning:>)
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
