Twitter poetry 2021: Week 26

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

Two notes:

  1. This week, I posted 7 gogyohkas on Twitter, as you’ll see below. Next week, I’ll have 7 in a different poetic form. I won’t necessarily stick to one form per week, but for some reason, I just felt like doing so for a few weeks. We’ll see.
  2. A few weeks ago, I thought I had written half a year’s worth of daily Twitter poems. Apparently, unlike my father the mathematician, I cannot do basic math… because, actually, this is the week that marks half a year. 26 is half of 52. Who knew?

Anyway, please enjoy this last week’s Twitter poems!

Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem,
David

  1. David, this week’s poems spoke to me. I felt like I was experiencing an authentic and honest exploration of ideas and emotions. Thank you for sharing this.

    6/27 poem resonates. Love always brings pain…we share the joys and sorrows of those we love, and rejection by those we love is painful.

    6/30 poem is very clever and demonstrates empathy. It brings to mind my late husband. He was the embodiment of man as created by God on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel… balanced masculine and feminine sides and a full range of human emotions, fair-minded and ethical.

    Robert, my fiance is wonderful, and we have a lot in common. Over our seven years living together, I gradually discovered that while he has all the desirable masculine attributes, he also has a very strong feminine side. At first, I found this a little disconcerting, but over time, I came to appreciate it very much. We share interests, attitudes, and ideas. He also has many of the same faults and weaknesses as I do, and somehow, I find that endearing. πŸ™‚

    Take care! ❀

    1. Thanks so much, Cheryl. – for the compliment and for sharing… it would seem that high quality men are attracted to you…. I don’t wonder why ❀

      -David
