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 want to thank you all for your kind Comments, emails, and messages regarding my mom’s passing. It is a blow, and, as the cliche goes, it’s hard to believe that everything just carries on the same, even though the world has shifted. I am just keeping my head down, trying to get things done that have to be done. I probably won’t be posting much here the rest of the summer except for 15 Words or Less poems and the occasional Poetry Friday post. I need to just focus inward and on family right now.
This image makes me think of:
- how blurry tears turn everything
- dandelion fluffs look like beautiful alien life forms
- a submarine periscope
And here’s my first draft.
Blanket statement for July/August. Hope you’re having a wonderful summer. Mine is overwhelmingly busy and emotional. When you Comment, I get an email, and I will be doing my best to read every poem you guys write. But my availability over the summer to comment on each poem will be limited. I hope you’ll write because you love it and enjoy this community. Please know I value your participation, even if I am not able to respond much this July and August.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count)
