Welcome to 15 Words or Less Poetry Day! If you've never played or want a refresher on the guidelines, please check out the guidelines!
This high-wire image makes me think of carnival toys, dolls made out of those old-fashioned clothespins (not sure why) and the China pavilion at Epcot. What does it make you think of?
Take one of your answers and write a superfast 15 Words or Less poem. It doesn't have to describe this picture. Just get your brain revving and see what comes out! For an extra challenge during National Poetry Month, try writing your poem either FOR a child or FROM a child's point of view. But if it doesn't come out as a children's poem, that's OK. Share whatever you come up with:>)
Feel free to offer each other encouragement and feedback (see the guidelines link above)--that is so much appreciated by everyone.
