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.
Okay, one last (this one a rare unfiltered one) photo from Cyprus. On our first full day there, Maddie took us to Cavo Greco, a beautiful beach on the Mediterranean Sea. We rented this fun paddle boat (or pedal boat–as they more accurately call it) with a slide on it! We had such a great time sliding, hanging off the back and being pulled along, paddling…I made them drop me at the dock at the end and go back out so I could take a few pictures. Their parade wave here makes me laugh every time.
This image makes me think of several things:
- a boat with a trampoline on top
- tiny clown cars at parades
- why do we so often stop playing as grown-ups?
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.)
