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.
Last week’s photo, if you’re curious, was a filtered close-up shot of some bath salts my daughter Maddie gave me. They smell soooo good, and they have dried herbals in them, which are the specks. (These Thistle Farms Love Heals products are made by women survivors of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction. I have a lip smoothie and the bath salts and love them both!)
If you’re a regular blog visitor (thank you!), then you probably know I have quite the sweet tooth. A good frosted sugar cookie is one of the finer pleasures in life–I usually pick ones that are mostly white, because I don’t like the taste of the food dye. So this dapper little penguin was just right–and delicious!
This image makes me think of several things:
- spider rain (look it up if you don’t know what I’m referring to–shudder!)
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.)
