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 another photo from my wanderings of the Smithsonian Gardens. This image makes me think of several things:
- a cyborg eyeball–an eyeborg
- Journey to the Center of the Earth
- Horton Hears a Who
And here’s my first draft. Usually, I just use the photo as a jumping-off point, and my poem stands alone (at least kind of). But this week, I wrote a renaming poem, so the poem makes no sense at all without the image.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
