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.
My older daughter Annabelle is moving to Wisconsin. I am going to miss her funny, loud, energetic, dramatic self SO much! One thing she wanted to do before she moved was go paint something at Color Me Mine, a ceramic painting shop. She turned these salt and pepper shakers into C-3PO and R2-D2. There was a pre-teen or teen guy hovering behind our table for forever, and he finally said, “That’s awesome!”
This image makes me think of several things:
- Star Wars, obviously
- the artistic eye
- movie theaters with recliners (they are just INVITING naps, people!)
And here’s my first draft, which is also my daily haiku for National Poetry Month!
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
