I’m back! Thanks for participating last week with your wonderful poems.
Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
This is a star-forming region within the Tarantula Nebula. It’s a composite of images taken by the Hubble Telescope. Isn’t it amazing? This image makes me think of:
1. The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel
2. A marble
3. Dragons–I see several of them in there!
Here’s my poem first draft:
You See a Marble
I see a planet:
glass, cast, miraculous
I curl inside,
only knees protruding,
–Laura Purdie Salas
No idea what that one’s even about, except that I picture this lonely boy who somehow has the ability to curl into this tiny magic orb and disappear when he wants to.
So, what does this picture make YOU think of? Think fast, and then write a 15 words or less poem and share it in the comments! Your poem doesn’t have to describe the actual picture. Feel free to comment on each others’ poems and tell what your favorite part is:>)
