Madness Poetry is down to just four matchups! My matchup with J.J. Close, who does very clever wordplay, goes live at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time here. I hope you’ll visit and vote for your favorite on all four pairs of poems. Thanks to those of you who voted last week!
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.
Here’s a photo from a Harry Potter attraction we went to last month. This is Annabelle holding a mandrake. I’m going to leave it at that and see what you guys come up with from your own imagination, Harry Potter knowledge, or interpretation of the photo.
This image makes me think of several things:
- “Thanks for the ruffled socks, Grandmom!” (not)
- Old Hawaii Five-0 (I’m not sure why)
- totem pole in the jungle
And here’s my first draft.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
