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 was in Florida for the past week, and before Irma hit, Randy and I spent several lovely days in Daytona Beach. (After Irma hit was another story.) One of my favorite things was visiting the Marine Science Center, where I got to feed stingrays, see healing birds and ocean life, and learn about cool animals, including this handsome moray eel!
This image makes me think of several things:
- the devil
- scary balloons
- SCUBA diving
And here’s my first draft. It was eerie how he just stayed there in his log with his snout sticking out and slowly opened and closed his mouth. Very threatening, menacing, somehow.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
