Twitter poetry 2021: Week 7

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

I do think think that I’m growing as a result of this challenge, but part of the challenge is the repetitive the repetitive the repetitive nature of the daily goal that Ingrid and I have set for ourselves. I think we’re both getting a bit weary of this, but so far we’re both still in the race!

I’m not sure if I will stick to the following or not (probably not), but it has struck me that writing haikus might be an easy[er] way of keeping pace in this marathon. Also, since I’ve started writing haikus with “Magnetic Poetry”, I’ve been including them on my Twitter account too. Anyway…

Below is my 7th week of Twitter poems:

Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem,

  1. This is my favorite from your week David:
    “Blowing biting bursts
    Bare bones, breath billowing, blue
    Branches bent back; brrrrrr!”
    I reached for my sweater when I read this..and I am in the tropics.!
    I admire your doing this..I don’t think I could! Mazeltov!

  2. I really like your haiku David – you seem to have a natural affinity with the form! Also thanks, when running a marathon, it’s always better not to go it alone 🏃‍♀️
