Twitter poetry 2021: Week 16

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

In retrospect, I would say that this idea of writing daily poetry on my Twitter account, which did not take long to merge into the stream of poetry that I produce on this blog, was directly responsible for my increased output.

Perhaps that seems obvious to you, but when I took this challenge upon myself, I thought, “How hard could this be? I can write one haiku daily – no big deal!” However, in truth, even poems of very few words take me a while to write; and -also- writing poetry seems to have a snowballing effect on me.

The more I write, the more I am driven to write. It is (and maybe I am) a bit crazy.

Below is my 16th week of Twitter poems:

Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem,

  1. Wonderful! I followed you on Twitter. Shalom, my friend, there are groups praying for y’all 24/7 here in America — my husband and I are praying, too. 💙⚪💙 Baruk HaSham!

  2. loved all of these David and congrats for keeping it up.
    The writing for me is fun too but I like to keep up with others and then that becomes a problem if i’m writing too much 💖🌷

    1. Yes! I totally get that. And – responding to comments takes time too! It’s hard to find a balance with all of these blogging-related activities!


  3. I had read and commented on most of these poems and like all of them very much. The April 19th poem, which I had not read, I found especially beautiful. Indeed, you are “rhythm’s son”! 🙂 Also, it was amusing to read that a crockpot was your nemesis! All the best, David! ❤

  4. I still find why elaborate? so raw and painful. Effective to say the least, David. But I don’t think I had seen poetry kisses before. It is soothing and honest. Very believable, when it comes to you, mate. There is so much of exploration in your writing. Which is inspiring to see.
