At first glimpse of Laura’s photo for this week’s "15 Words or Less" poetry challenge, "mercury rising" popped into my mind.  I’ve never seen the 1998 Bruce Willis thril15_words_or_less_poems_buttonler, so my apologies if it’s an unsavory association–ignorance…bliss, yes?

Here’s my quick poetic response to her image–if you’d like to try your hand, I know Laura would welcome you with open arms!

In youth, in ignorance,
Silvery, liquid beads
Were enigmatic delight–
Not poison.
Like sin sometimes….
