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.
Before today’s challenge, I want to share some lovely news from Elaine Magliaro (author of the glorious picture book Things to Do) shared on Facebook recently that two poems she originally wrote years ago for 15 Words or Less are now published in a UK book!
Congratulations, Elaine! I always love to hear good news when our little first drafts here take on a life of their own elsewhere. You just never know:>)
Another image from our trip to Cyprus. I always find something appealing about the neat rolls of hay gathered in fields.
This image makes me think of several things:
- Hey, Hey, Hay! — a new picture book by Christy Mihaly
- a Little Debbie Swiss Cake Roll
- a Ferris wheel
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.)
NOTE: We are moving on Monday, and I don’t know how much I’ll be able to reply to comments this week or next.
