Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
OK, I am totally subverting the 15 Words or Less process today! For the first time (and last), I went looking for a picture for a poem I wrote yesterday for Tricia’s Monday Poetry Stretch at The Miss Rumphius Effect.
Her stretch was to use three certain words in a poem (you’ll have to click on the link above to see the words). I wrote my poem and then went looking for a picture. I know! Cheaters never prosper. But all’s fair in love and poetry, I say.
Here’s my poem.
November’s night regatta–
Leaves billowing, floating on wind
with white moonlight sails

Addendum: The Poetry Gods are snorting pomegranate juice right now, because I just realized that, in writing a 3rd or 4th version of my poem, I got rid of one of the words. Ha! on me. I guess cheaters really DON’T prosper!
Now, what does this image make YOU think of? It could be anything from your last camping trip with your family to the corsage you got for prom, or anything else that strikes your fancy. Write a quick 15 words or less poem and share it in the comments!
