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 a pic of Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park, which I walked through several times a day at NCTE. This image makes me think of several things:
- dancing trees
- juice boxes with their little triangle flaps to lift up (the background building)
- a giant podium with no speaker (and lots of audience members waiting)
And here’s my first draft. That tree to the right of the tower looked like it was trying just a little too hard:>)
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
