Twitter poetry 2021: Week 2

My blogger-poet-friend Ingrid inspired me to create a Twitter account and start writing #APoemADay, which I began on January 1, 2021.

Below is my second week of Twitter poems:

Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem,

    1. Thank you so much, Molly… it’s a totally new concept and genre for me. I’ll be very curious to look back when the year is over and read all of them – one-after-the-other!

      Shabbat shalom,
      David

  1. I used to blog daily – did it for over 5 years. Then I started taking the weekends off. That lasted another 7 years. When I switched blogging sites to WP I decided M-W-F was sufficient. Enjoy the daily poetry but don’t feel any guilt for posting less… My mother was always big on quality over quantity. (though all these are good!)

    1. What was your goal? Were you trying to earn money from your blog or just blogging for purposes of self-expression? (or some other reason?)

      -David

  2. Poetry perhaps. Life certainly. Death eventually. — Aye, that just about sums it up. You know, David, sometimes you are quite a lovely madman.

  3. I am really enjoying your micro-poetry and am honoured that you are taking part in my challenge! I feel like there’s so much chatter on Twitter that sometimes the poems fall on deaf ears, but imagine how much poetry we will have produced by the end of the year!

    1. All of that “chatter” is why I had not joined Twitter until you floated your idea… and then I thought – wow – that’s perfect for Twitter!

      1. Yes, I once tried to spread poetry around Facebook but that went down like a lead balloon. Instagram is not much better but on Twitter there is space for a poetic arena!

  4. Yes, good luck to you Ben, and your second week is an eclectic buffet of poetry..I liked the shower especially…you covered the whole timeline:):)

        1. Oh thanks Ben. I figure in a year I would have a book to put it in if I don’t figure out what exactly my book is. πŸ€£πŸ‘πŸ€—

        2. Hey Ben, thanks for liking today but that link was broken too so I took it down. Did you get to see my Heaven Meets Hell Post? I wrote on Friday but it says 2 days ago. Totally foulded it up.

        3. Yep – I just commented πŸ™‚

          BTW, you can feel free to call me ‘David’ – that’s my actual first name ❀

        4. Oh I usually do… sorry about that.. Oh good.. I soooo much apprecaite that! He’s a numbers guy and it was fun to do so I’d like to do more. He gets like 600 likes in a week. Brings out a different side of my writing πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™soooo much. I’ll go see. ❀️

  5. In the good ole days before the pandemic era, I used to write a poem a day incorporating at least three daily prompts!🀭
    Now I feel good if I write weekly! πŸ˜…
    Keep writing, David. Some very profound thoughts in your twitter poetry. ❀️

    1. I struggle with just the d’Verse prompts – any more than that is too much for me, let alone including more than one prompt per poem! I don’t know how you and others do it! Thanks, Punam!

      (BTW, how did pandemic era affect your blogging?)

      -David

      1. You are welcome, David. I am intimidated by the calibre of poets who write for d’Verse prompts, so I content myself with reading their poems!

        Writing daily was not a problem. But with both the kids and hubby at home 24/7, I found I didn’t have enough time to read and write. So had to cut down my blogging.
        I did write about it in my previous poem.
