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. Happy first week of school for all your northern teachers!
While visiting my older daughter in La Crosse, WI, over the summer, I loved looking at the various heron statues in all different themes. If I remember correctly, this is a close-up of one tiny part of one statue.
This image makes me think of several things:
- the gaudy jewelry my mom loved to wear
- when they serve an entire fish on a plate at a restaurant–makes me squeamish
- The Rainbow Fish
Having gone kayaking and canoeing and stand-up paddleboarding several times this summer with a parks program, I’m gonna run with rainbow fish.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
