Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
Here’s a forgotten photo I found on my phone . This is a sculpture in an art gallery in one of the skyways in downtown Minneapolis.?This image makes me think of:
2)?how would you shower if you were made of metal?
3) who would push an empty stroller?
And here’s my?first draft:

from the fields

Now it’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS!??(Title doesn’t count toward word count:>)?
Also, I want to give a shout-out to Lauren McBride, a long-time 15 Words or Less participant who has actually gone on to publish a number of poems that started out as drafts for the 15WOL weekly challenge. Lauren specializes in speculative poetry, and you can see her latest publication, a gorgeous poem called “Mournful,”?here–and she even mentions 15 Words or Less! Thanks, Lauren, and congratulations!
