15 Words or Less - PhotoPoetry

Laura Salas, aka[info]laurasalas  , is off on another round of school visits promoting her new book STAMPEDE.  She asked if I would like to host 15 words or less photopoetry this week and I said sure! This is no pressure, lots of fun. If you're not familiar with it, you can read the guidelines here.

Here's this week's picture.
 


 

What does this make you think of? A window? A tunnel? A trap? Which side are you on?

If you'd like to play, just choose any topic this image makes come to your mind and write a quick 15 Words or Less poem. Your poem doesn't have to describe this photo. The picture is just a jumping-off point.  Basically look at the picture and write a poem of 15 words or less inspired by the photo. Please add your byline to the poem so I can include it in the poetry Friday roundup.

Go on. You know you want to.


There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

NO ESCAPE
My mind feels clouded,
A prisoner of life,
Will I ever escape?
Who knows!!

Isn't that funny the way a picture like this can send us in a different direction?

Behind an ocean of cool
concrete waves
I sigh
and hide
from summer's
punishing heat.

Water whispers--
saplings sway--
glimpses of a world
just
out
of
reach.
I weep.

Fish scales shimmer
across the sunny day;
only the dark
allows us to see.

I DO want to!

Nose pressed against the fence.
Eyes, too.
Toddler wants what’s greener

Hard stone curves
merges with nature
palette of blues and greens
mimics soft peacock feathers.

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
