Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
I think this tree was near Niagara Falls…but I’m not sure! Just one of those random pics I’ve had squirreled away for a 15 Words or Less day! OK, what kind of tree is this? I wanted to refer to a specific tree in my poem, but I didn’t have time to do a tree i.d., especially without a picture that includes the leaves. Oh, well. This image makes me think of:
1) wrinkled stockings or socks
2) elephant ankles
3) old hands
And here’s my?first draft, a cinquain.
Home for squirrels
Survivor of decades
Shade on August afternoons
