Poem for a Friday
I don't usually write poetry. But I read "Because I Am Furniture" last week (amazing book!) and then Laura Salas sent out this 15 word poetry challenge. I thought about the amazing circumhorizontal arc I saw on Monday (thanks for the name, Maggie!) and this just came to me.
Now be gentle. I don't claim to be a great poet. But sometimes it's fun to try something different, to challenge yourself to write in a way you're not used to. This is posted on Laura's site along with a lot of other (better!) poems.
Wisps of color
Trick of light
Something so simple, so ordinary
Brings hope and smiles
What can YOU say in 15 words or less?
