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.
Here’s another pic from Duluth. It was a stormy early morning, and we were watching a 1000-footer come into the harbor. Water was pouring over the canal walls because the storm had the water levels up higher than usual. That puddle/lake where the water is pouring into is a wide sidewalk where we usually stand to watch, leaning against that low wall. Not that morning! This image makes me think of several things:
- How some people leave a room and they leave chaos behind
- The giant dumping bucket at a waterpark in the Wisconsin Dells
- Life at sea
And here’s my first draft. I wanted to kind of zoom in from the epicness of the storm to one tiny thing.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count)
