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 took this pic in an airport a couple of weeks ago. Want to take a guess? I’ll reveal the correct answer (if I can remember exactly what it was) in next week’s post.
This image makes me think of several things:
- slime molds (they move in search of food!)
- effluorescence on our old basement walls
- “Life finds a way.” (Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park)
And here’s my first draft. I was really inspired by the thought that living creatures are almost all moving. Even plants and other things we don’t necessarily see move. (I love Plants Can’t Sit Still by Rebecca Hirsch!)
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
