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.

Rainbow
Wisps of color
Trick of light
Something so simple, so ordinary
Brings hope and smiles

What can YOU say in 15 words or less?

  1. Er, do Twitter-length horror stories count? O:) I don’t do poetry. But 140 character length horror I can do… in theory. 😉
