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.
At the Reykjavik, Iceland airport, this eye-catching statue dominates. I thought it was a berry, as I saw lots of berries on pillows and art while we were there. But looking more closely, maybe it’s something hatching? I couldn’t quickly find info, so I’m leaving it vague! This image makes me think of several things:
- ice cream sundae
- the claw of a creature climbing out from underground
- a dinosaur being born
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.)
