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.
This is another pic from our Cyprus trip. Here’s a fountain by the ocean in Larnaca, in the touristy part of town.
This image makes me think of several things:
- a magic act (kind of looks like the sculpture is levitating)
- vertebrate creatures evolving in the ocesn
- roasting marshmallows
- portaging a canoe
And here’s my first draft. As I’m sitting here surrounded by boxes and crates and bubble-wrapped stuff, still moving in to our new place, writing this poem this morning at first seemed a chore. And then, a gift. It was lovely to think of campfires and cookouts along the North Shore of Minnesota. Maybe next summer :>)
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
