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.
You know I can’t resist a beautiful cookie, and while in DC I got this sparkling, lovely, iced snowflake cookie. I can’t remember which bakery, but it’s probably just as well. Frankly, it looked better than it tasted. (I mean, it was fine, and I ate the whole thing, but it didn’t knock my socks off.)
This image makes me think of several things:
- the first time I saw snow as a kid, on vacation in Colorado from Florida
- the way trees all look frosted after a snowfall
- the baking competition shows I love on TV
And here’s my first draft.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
