Twitter poetry 2021: Week 29

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

This week, I posted a series of naanis, which are only 4 lines and no more than 25 syllables long. For reasons I cannot identify, I was inspired to write this week’s series about my six-year-old daughter… maybe because she’s also small! (although she insists that I refer to her as “medium-sized”!)

I hope you enjoy this week’s naanis!

Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem,
David

  1. Even though I don’t use ( or particularly like) twitter, I can see how the word limit on that platform could force a poet into a new approach; thoughts have to be condensed into such a small space. Well done! I honestly hadn’t heard of a ‘naani’ until now. Thanks for teaching me something new!

  2. Great poems about your daughter. Did she donate her hair to Locks of Love? Here in my neck of the woods, biker dudes grow their hair long. They then have it cute and shaved off to donate to cancer patients.

    1. Molly,

      We live in Israel so Locks of Love isn’t a thing here – but we also have an NGO that creates wigs for cancer patients.

      That’s an awesome anecdote about the bikers! Thanks for telling me – it makes me smile πŸ™‚

      Shabbat shalom,
      David

      1. I wondered if they were international. Cutting off your hair and giving it to someone is an amazing act of kindness. you are raising your daughter right as they would say around here.
