Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines are here)!
Here’s the key lime pie I shared yesterday from a Lerner author dinner during NCTE. Looks a little odd, but oh my goodness, it was heaven.
This picture makes me think of:
- My frequent cooking disasters–which both look AND taste a little…weird
- Modern art
- A puddle of pie
And, here’s my first draft. I was grateful for the thesaurus, since I was a couple of words over the limit. Which is NOT allowed, people! So I replaced “and drink up the sky” with “just swallow the sky” and made a couple other tweaks to meet the 15-word restriction. Whew!
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!
