Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
Here’s a pic from the bakery. I love frosted cookies! But scarecrows…hmmm. I think I’ve seen too many horror movies/TV shows where a scarecrow comes to life. This image makes me think of:
1) The Wizard of Oz
2) Halloween costumes
3) scary cookies that come to life
And here’s my?first draft, which I really had to cut, cut, cut to get down to 15 words. It brought back lots of memories of my daughters getting all dressed up in fancy costumes, only to have to cover all their bling with snow boots, parkas, gloves, and hats!
