Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
Usually, I post pictures I find beautiful or spooky or engaging. This one just makes me smile. When we were in Dublin, we were signed up for the Irish Dance Party at the Temple Bar. It was an afternoon event where we would “learn a bit of Irish dancing” and learn about Irish music. Twenty minutes before start time, we (me, husband, 19yo daughter) were the only people in this huge, empty room. No way were we going to do this by ourselves! How intimidating! But then, about 5 minutes before start time, a huge group of U.S. students on their senior trip poured in. So it was full of 60 high school seniors and us. Lord. But it ended up being a blast! If I were a YA writer, I would’ve gotten tons of material:>) Even though there were all the usual stereotypes/cliques, most of the kids jumped in, had fun, and were good sports. The whole thing ended up being a great memory!
This image makes me think of:
1) square dancing in PE in elementary school
2) dancing at a wedding
3) drum corps, where I could do the moves well but couldn’t remember everything in the right order!
And here’s my?first draft.
Now it’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS!??(Title doesn’t count toward word count:>) If you leave a poem in the comments, and if it’s 15 words or less, I’ll try to respond!
