spill toxic words,
piercing heart and marrow.
breaths' swirling smoke,
trees stripped bare–
Hot chocolate & sweaters,

Two…two for the price of one! This week's photo prompt for Laura's "15 Words or Less Poems" could hold me hostage a while, it's gorgeous! It's funny to me how photographs inspire me, though…these poems came fast and furious, but I couldn't quite manage a child-like voice (which Laura encouraged this week, at least for herself).
Your turn: Wanna try your own "15 Words"? DO share in comments or let me know your thoughts about mine!

Love your poem…perfect picture for this week, especially “frosty kisses”. I like that line! Bounced over from (in)courage and love what you are doing over here!
I think your photo perfectly illustrates the poem…and that’s quite a challenge!
Ooops – I just realized that you were given the photo and asked to write…in the case, the words perfectly fit the photo. 🙂 Sorry about that.

I’ll be blogging on Monday. Alternately champing at the bit and wanting to run back into the barn.
Bluebirds are packing, and squirrels have used their favored “Robin” status to muscle their way into the invitation. Disney squirrels, not Pixar ones.
Wonderful take on the photo this week! She really picked a great one this week, so easy to tell a story with!!
