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.
While in DC, Randy and I admired these gorgeous bas relief (maybe?) sculptures for the various branches of the military. They featured fabulous dramatic scenes, including this Coast Guard rescue at sea.
This image makes me think of several things:
- Grand Canyon helicopter rides, which look thrilling and scary
- when my sister was shot and was taken by helicopter to the hospital
- my dream of riding in a 1,000-footer across Lake Superior
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.)
