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 glad you’re here.
While Randy and I were walking Jack last week, we walked right by these mallards at the lake. Jack was happily oblivious, as he was busy sniffing animal poo or something.
This image makes me think of:
- students (doing great, just above the danger zone, or (gulp) in danger of drowning)
- three’s a crowd
- an animal teeter-totter
And here’s my first draft. I had trouble getting my bigger thought into 15 words this week. I was thinking about how much of life is luck or random chance. The duck that’s the eater of the fish one minute is the prey of the gator the next. I couldn’t quite make it work, but I do like the concept. Might come back to it later.
Please note: My husband, Randy, is having a medical procedure today, and I’m with him at the medical center. I may or may not be able to respond, depending on how the day is going and what online access is like. But poem it up anyway, ok? :>)
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count)
