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.
I actually don’t know where I took this photo, but it was in January, and it made me smile.
This image makes me think of several things:
- ice sculptures at the fancy Thankgsiving meal we went to for many years
- a moose trapped in the snow all winter
- a moos made out of stars
And here’s my first draft. I know it doesn’t make much sense, but it’s what I thought of when I thought about a moose.
NOTE: I am off the grid this week. I will be back with you next week!
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)

Love your ending as sometimes it seems spring will never some.
the mystical magical
of malls and many
lights the way
dare you follow
I like the contrasts in your poem, Laura. Mine went a little dark.
See My Ghost?
Only just last year
this spot was pasture.
I liked to graze here . . .

Winter isn’t Over
with snorts and stomps
March moooovs over
April fools the sky whispers
wintery frost etches my windows
Love that third line. So perfect for fickle spring.

I like the quiet action in your poem.
My Pet Moose*
by Dianne Moritz
My cute pet moose
loves chocolate mousse.
He follows it
with fresh orange juice!
*the minute the word moose entered my mind, this followed.
Cute. Now I am craving chocolate mousse.
