15 Word Poetry

Laura Salas is a children’s writer with a wonderful poetry and children’s book blog. A while back, she posted this picture and challenged readers to write a poem to go with it.

Your challenge here, if you should accept it, is to write a poem exactly 15 words long for this picture. I find that word length restrictions open up creativity. Here is my submission:

Hold me back!
I don’t wish to harm you.
But my nature is to stab.

Please have fun in the comments section with your poetic interpretations.

And then, follow this flower:

    Neck against a sword,
    Let’s be friends once more;
    To make peace with the world.

    Movements, loud and quick.
    A moment frozen in time.
    All is silent,
    All is still.

  3. The fight
    brings death

    tragic, comic, avoidable, regrettable
    unable to still their hands
    both lunge
