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.
Thank you for your poems last week! In case you’re wondering, that was a filtered picture of water pouring into my bathtub. The orange “straw” at the right center edge is the stream of water, and the rest is the roiling water in the tub.
Today’s image comes from a supermoon night. My moon pictures never come out, because the moon looks so much lovelier and larger to my eye than to my cell phone! But the magic of filters enhances it:>)
This image makes me think of several things:
- a giant dragonfly
- a robin’s nest with eggs in it (in sky, below and to left of moon)
- Peter Pan and air raids in London during WWII
And here’s my first draft.
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS! (Title doesn’t count toward word count.)
NOTE: I’m at a school visit today–on World Read Aloud Day! Excited to read my new picture book to kids for the very first time! And I will be on a school visit next Thursday as well. That means no comments from me on these days, but I trust this busy and kind community to do your thing whether I’m here or not:>)
