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.
This is the City Hall clock tower in downtown Minneapolis. I took this pic from the roof of a parking garage when Maddie and I went down to meet Randy for a food truck lunch in June. It was about to storm, and the sky looked so dramatic! This image makes me think of several things:
- The clock tower looks like a syringe injecting light into the sky
- I have a sudden urge to build a town out of Legos
And here’s my first draft. This one poured out quickly, just like I imagined the electricity racing upward through the building.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
[NOTE: I’m traveling today. I will read every poem in the next day or two, and you’ll know I’ve read it because I’ll Like it. But I don’t know if I’ll be able to actually Comment on them or not.]
