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. Thank you for being such an active and kind community while I was out of town–out of the country! We were visiting our younger daughter overseas and spent a week and a few days in Cyprus and then London. I’m sure you’ll be seeing pics here from both:>)
Here’s someone climbing out of a tiny exit of a tomb at the Tombs of the Kings (or, really, just wealthy businessmen and politicians) in Paphos, Cyprus.
This image makes me think of several things:
- What would it be like to be a character in a videogame?
- my husband’s claustrophobia
- being trapped by an earthquake (it was weird being in all these old, stone structures around Cyprus and reading about how they were initially destroyed by earthquakes)
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.)
