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.
This image makes me think of several things:
- those displays of shoes/boots to represent people (soldiers often, but not always) killed
- my husband’s converse obsession
- my hatred of shoelaces!
And here’s my first draft. NOTE: I’m off today on a visit to a library, where I’ll be sharing and writing poetry with kids. Can’t wait to do that and to deliver the signed books I got for them at ALA. Bonus: My daughter Annabelle will be along with me on this little road trip:>) The downside is that I will be out all day and not around to comment on your poems, though I will read them when I can!
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
