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.
Here’s a photo from last summer:
I like roller coasters, but not things like this. So I wrote poems while Randy and Maddie rode the Extreme Swing. This image makes me think of several things:
- stomach dropping
- cotton candy (and that raccoon/cotton candy video–so sad!)
And here’s my first draft. This looks different because it’s also my daily haiku for National Poetry Month!
And shoot–I just realized it’s 16 words! I didn’t even count, because who could go over 15 words in a haiku? Me, apparently!
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
