Twitter poetry 2021: Week 6

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:

Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem,

  1. 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 🥰

  2. 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!
