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 love boats and water and bridges. I took this pic while we were on our Thames Rocket boat tour, as the guide explained to us that when a U.S. businessman bought the London Bridge (now in Lake Havasu, Arizona), he thought THIS was the bridge he was buying. This image makes me think of several things:
- people holding hands across borders
- bombing of bridges during war
- self-building robotic bridges
And here’s my first draft. Even when robots are building bridges, it still works best to have two (or two teams) of robots starting on opposite shores and working toward each other. My poem feels more like a maxim or a proverb than a poem, but it’s all I’ve got time for today!
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
