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.
While I was at the Anderson Center at Tower View for the Minnesota Children’s Book Festival a couple weeks ago, I found myself gazing at this unusual sculpture/assemblage. (This is just a close-up of a tiny bit of it, and I wish I’d written down the artist’s name.) I am not knowledgeable about art, nor in any way talented at visual art (see my #poemsketch project), but I’ve been having fun playing with art lately, which is entirely new for me.
This image makes me think of several things:
- a horrible new hunting weapon
- the strangest hair salon ever
And here’s my first draft.
I love that this forum is one in which we can all try and share art. It doesn’t have to be good or unusual or rhyming or serious or…anything. It just has to be. That’s the first step for the artist in all of us, right?
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
