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.
A couple of weeks ago, Randy and I attended the Youth in Music marching band show at the new Vikings stadium downtown. (Awesome show, but what’s with no treats at the concession stand?) On our way back to the car, we passed a large neon-trimmed Viking ship. Just like the old days:>) This image makes me think of several things:
- A cool violin
- A shooting star
- Jet contrails made of neon
And here’s my first draft. I played violin when I was little. In fact, one of my few moments of glory was a picture in the local newspaper of me in 2nd grade at a school concert. I’m sure my violin did plenty of hissing and screeching:>)
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count)
