Happy Thanksgiving, 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.
Our younger daughter lives overseas doing volunteer work. She lives on practically nothing and works to make the world better. Here’s the holiday decoration she made for her flat, including her hand-painted reminder to herself to be grateful. She is so inspiring!
This image makes me think of several things:
- Ack! It’s late November already!
- candles make everything magical
- the smell of Christmas trees
And here’s my first draft. My dead laptop has had a new solid state drive installed and will be home eventually. For now, I’m on an ancient laptop and work is still proceeding very slowly. (But that’s better than NO laptop, and I am grateful!) I can’t do the image version I usually do, but here it is:
BreathEach morning,I open a giftWrapped in snowTied with ribbons of sunrise sky
