Twitter poetry 2021: Week 19

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

Due to the ongoing violence in Israel, I ended up posting eight Twitter poems this week, instead of the usual seven. If you’d like to read my [general] perspective on the current explosion of violence here in Israel, you may read that here.

Anyway, below is my 19th week of Twitter poems:

Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem,
David

  1. Impressive you are staying the course!
    I have to say I’ve felt like this for as long as I can remember:
    “worn
    out by
    our endless#war, I’ve blocked it
    out”

  2. Have been thinking of you. You’ve gotten me out of my self-centered bubble and back to reading the news after having for some time sworn off it… worried for you. Glad that is your game face. I think sometimes it’s needed, when facing certain alternatives. 🤟💘 I admire you… and your beautiful poetry, David. These are so wonderful. xoxo

  3. David, a week with many multicolored gems! ❤ I particularly liked the May 11th poems. The butterfly cinquain, a form I really like, is exquisitely beautiful. I found the lanturns very touching, a sane and healthy response to the conflict around you. The gogyohta is a heartfelt and practical plea for peace. May it come soon!

    My thoughts are with you, your family, and your country! All the best! ❤
