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. But because it’s National Poetry Month, I have a #wonderbreak poem to share, too! And it’s Poem in Your Pocket Day, too! So grab a poem (your own or someone else’s), print it out, and spread some poetry love today!
Here’s My #Wonderbreak Poem
I just never get tired of looking at the moon:>)
And Here’s 15 Words or Less
And now to our usual Thursday activity! Here’s a gorgeous sculpture right on harbor in Reykjavik, Iceland. It’s called Sun Voyager, and it’s by Jón Gunnar Árnason. I thought having a moon and sun-related poem on the same day would be fun! This image makes me think of several things:
- whale ribs
- drum corps in 2011 (our show was Valhalla, and this Viking ship brings it all back)
- tuning forks from orchestra–I never could make them work
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.)
