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,
David

  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.

    ALSO, REALLY LOVE..
    the grandma one💖

  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,
      David
