My blogger-poet-friend Ingrid inspired me to create a Twitter account and start writing #APoemADay, which I began on January 1, 2021.
Honestly, despite my intention last week, I didn’t particularly work on including more adjectives in my poems this week. In fact, if anything, I feel that I’ve hit a rough patch with my Twitter poetry – it’s becoming difficult to motivate myself to write these daily little poems at all.
This week, two of my Twitter poems were directly copied from this blog, and I have already scheduled another poem from my blog to be posted next week. Technically, there’s nothing “wrong” with that because all of my poems are my originals, and I am keeping up with my “daily” commitment, but when I first created this Twitter account, my intention had been to write entirely unique poems for my Twitter account ~ and I’ve failed at that.
Below is my 6th week of Twitter poems:

Awesome project, keep at it!
Thanks so much, Rhiannon 🙂
I am really trying to stick to it!
I change my name a lot, on Twitter… today it is Helena
Because there is someone on Twitter who use to stalk me. And even if I blocked him, he’d make alternate accounts to harass me.
I just followed you on Twitter… 🐦
I followed you back
Thank you. 😊 Now, I have one follower! I used to be on Twitter in the past, and had about 2,000, but I removed my account because of that person. But, now I am new to it, again.
mmh – this may be a bit naughty: as twitter-abstinent I wonder how does twitter go with kosher, I wonder…
Plenty of kosher-keepers on Twitter, for better and for worse, Barbara! We all share the same human impulses 😉
my answer to twitter: life’s too short. 🙂
I have a Twitter account I just started the other day but haven’t done anything with it, yet. I will try to find your Twitter page.
Let me know 😀
Also, are you into poetry? If so, you can try this #APoemADay challenge!
Yes, I am into poetry and enjoy writing it. Thank you! I will check it out as soon as possible. 😊
David I enjoy all of your poetry. I write a Haiku or Senryu every single day and post them on my blog with great following and feedback. As they are short I used to post them on Twitter as that’s what the platform is all about. Abbreviated. Unfortunately I never found the reader I was looking for, so I stopped. My Facebook page gets plenty of likes when I post but I get little feedback for my poetry so I just shake my head and stay with blogging. It helps me so much more. I wish you the same contentment and urge you not to pressure yourself. It will affect your writing 🥰
Thanks so much, Christine 💛
I really appreciate your advice.
Oh – I am just discovering that.
I can identify that, David: I think I am running a marathon and I started off sprinting 🏃♀️ I am enjoying your Twitter poetry though whether from your blog or not!
😫 I empathize with that, Ingrid 😫
I think writing a poem every single day is an achievement in itself!
