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.
I’m not going to tell you what this one is. It’s whatever you make of it!
This image makes me think of several things:
- the silica packets inside shoes
- dried seedheads in the snow
- the view through a microscope
And here’s my first draft. Oh, my, I struggled with this. I so wanted to write about a vampire who wanted to suck moisture from air instead of human blood. But just couldn’t find a way in 15 words.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
