Twitter poetry 2021: Week 4

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

I’ve been finding that I am more able to express uncomfortable feelings in this micropoetry format. However, on the downside, sometimes I feel that I have to write micropoems because I’ve committed myself to writing them daily, and I ended up feeling that I’m doing nothing more than throwing words together for the sake of publishing them.

Below is my 4th week of Twitter poems:

Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem,

  1. Did you write these love them! What a good idea. I have a Twitter account and just felt lost on it. I had one for yrs then got rid of it and and two. Months ago I went back on. And just can’t seem to connect again. Lovely poems๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Thank you so much, WOC ๐Ÿ˜€

      Yeah, honestly, I avoided Twitter up until just this year when I read about Ingrid’s idea, and suddenly Twitter seemed purposeful to me!


          1. Oh my! Thank you so much, David. Now that I have taken up a bit of your time. I hope you’re are doing well.? I am still catching up on your posts. I do enjoy it very much.

          2. Aw, thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

            Yes, we’re well. No major news that I can think of… hmn…. well, we just signed our daughter up for first grade – that’s a pretty big deal!

            How about you?

          3. That is a big deal oh my very exciting. So happy for you and your wife. I hope your daughter is excited? Not much is going on at the moment, just trying to get through a brutally cold week. And. Now possible snow coming in on Monday. But a bit warmer. ๐Ÿ˜ŠThank you for asking.

  2. There are many who do not count micro-poetry as real poems. I take a more Zen approach. Some of the micro poets would take exception to those that contain rhyme but I think they are more than fine…

    1. I’m not really invested in whether my poems are technically micropoems, and I’m not really invested in whether micropoems are considered poems by other people ๐Ÿ˜€

      Mostly, I’m just having fun with a self-imposed poetry goal โค


  3. Oh these are great Ben and I totally get the feeling in writing in general when were not as moved when we are trying to keep up with writing. I loved them all and laughed at your last one. ๐Ÿคฃโค๏ธ

  4. I know exactly what you mean about feeling obliged to write one! Sometimes I wait until I feel inspired, then I write a bunch of them to use later on. I will also have to keep a note of the days as once January is over I wonโ€™t have a clue what day of the year it is ๐Ÿคช
