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. Today is International Peace Day, so check out the #peaceday hashtag and also the Peace Padlet. It’s also, appropriately, my daughter Maddie’s birthday, and I just videocalled her in Cyprus, where she’s living, doing charity work, and working toward peace. We are SO proud of her!
I blogged yesterday about making some peace sign safety pins. Here’s one.
This image makes me think of several things:
- diapers and our very brief attempt at reusable diapers–ack
- Greece (the colors, I guess?)
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.) And your poems do not have to be about peace. Whatever the image inspires you is just right and is welcome!
