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.
So, the picture I posted last week was a filtered image (as usual) of some frosted glass with a coral-y design on it. I think it was at my Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport, though I’m not 100% sure. It was just on a glass wall or door, but the shapes caught my eye. Here’s another picture, also, I think, from my airport. (If not from mine, these are from the St. Louis Airport.)
Isn’t that cool? There was a whole fleet of these hanging from the ceiling near one of the gates. This image makes me think of several things:
- an origami stegosaurus
- the Hindenburg
- the beauty of a freshly sharpened pencil
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 HAPPY HOLIDAYS, everyone!
