Twitter poetry 2021: Week 23

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

Well, well, well… looks like I’ve officially made it halfway to my goal of Tweeting one poem a day for the entire year of 2021. Not bad, eh? I must confess that I’m a bit proud of myself 😁 Oops! I miscalculated! It hasn’t been 1/2 a year yet…

This week, for some reason, I went on a senryū binge, and all of my Twitter poems turned out to be senryūs. I relate to them all as a mini-series, I suppose… and maybe I’ll do something like this again. Perhaps I’ll do a series of a different poetic form for the following week!

Anyway, please enjoy the last week’s Twitter poems below –

Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem,

  1. This one is my fav-
    “have you ever sighed
    rupturing a hole within
    which had nearly healed?”

    Although I tried it. And I think it’s the inhalation that tore the scab, hitched my breath and resulted in a sputtering cough.

  2. I love your dedication and your great poems

    indeed…. I know this …

    “have you ever sighed
    rupturing a hole within
    which had nearly healed?

    Deeper healing to be done.

    the grandma one💖

    1. Primadisya, thank you ❤
      FWIW, the real action is here on my blog – I mostly use Twitter to post my daily micropoems.

      All best,

  3. These are beautiful and amazing, David. My favorite is the second to last.

    That’s awesome you’re halfway through the poem a day challenge. I couldn’t keep up with it, personally. That’s why it’s a challenge I suppose. 😁 Kudos to you, and such awesome work.

    1. Lucy, you are so kind. Thank you much.

      That’s why it’s a challenge I suppose.

      I confess that I’d thought it was much easier than it’s turned out to be!

      Shabbat shalom,
