Twitter poetry 2021: Week 5

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

I feel like I’ve been hitting my stride with these daily poems, but I also feel like I am not as strong at using vivid imagery as some other poets whose works I enjoy… Perhaps I’ll make a concerted attempt at using adjectives in my micropoetry this coming week. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Below is my 5th week of Twitter poems:

Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem,

  1. All well written, David, but this one I keep reading aloud:

    So soft so soft I whisper these
    Words to warm soporific breeze
    Dream do dream do โ€“ oh tell me please
    What does one do โ€“ when no rhyme frees
    From fears from fears heart’s chambers freeze
    As ghostly winds howl through them?

    Quite perfect for recitation.

    1. Honestly, if it were not for my goal of writing “a poem a day” in 2021, I wouldn’t be on Twitter at all ๐Ÿ’“

      Thanks, Muri.


      P.S. if you do change your mind, please let me know ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks, Shannon ๐Ÿ™‚

      I do feel like having an illustration adds another dimension to the poetry – especially when it’s micropoetry and the poems themselves are so short!


  2. Love these short poems. โค Three stand out to me: 1/31 cherished alone time…lovely imagery! 2/2 Eagles and Doves with their feathers in the dust…wonderful call to peace. 2/4 Delightfully whimsical!

    Enjoy your weekend, David! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Iโ€™m not big on imagery either, but despite the current trend I donโ€™t think adjectives are everything! I am enjoying your Twitter poetry, keep going…

  4. I like them all! I love the imagery in,

    “Envelopes night stillness”
    All the sounds of the keyboard resound in your words. Bravo!

    I am stunned by your comment that you feel that your imagery may not be as robust as you might like…
    With respect, I beg to differ. A poet’s imagery is his/her own unique style.๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

    Cheers ๐ŸŒŸ
