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.
Thanks for making time to join our community during what is a very busy holiday week for many!
One last photo from Houston. This is a gizmo over a shop or restaurant that I walked by on my way to the Convention Center.
This image makes me think of several things:
- the going-a-million-different-directions feeling of the end of the year
- Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
- Kate Bush’s Cloudbusting video
- social media
And here’s my first draft. I got the cutest set of Scratchy Scratch Notes from Tabatha Yeatts from The Opposite of Indifference. What a fun holiday surprise–with the sweetest note, too. So I had to do this week’s first draft on one of these fun rainbow-colored scratchboards! Seems a perfect fit for the topic and photo, too!
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
I have family visiting this week and next. I will do my best to comment on poems, but it could be that I only get to click Like to let you know I did read it. But I will read and enjoy each one, as I always do!
