anxiety's incapacitating; encapsulating the heart; capping capacity
What’s a kimo?
According to this website, kimo poems are an Israeli 🇮🇱 version of haiku. Apparently, there was a need for more syllables in Hebrew. That said, most of the rules are still familiar:
- 3 lines.
- No rhymes.
- 10 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 6 in the third.
Also, the kimo is focused on a single frozen image (kind of like a snapshot). So it’s uncommon to have any movement happening in kimo poems.

At times, anxiety is equivalent to dying. A complete shutdown.
😞 so true 😞
Succinct, but gives a vivid idea of what anxiety is! ❤ Love it!

Creative title(s). You have captured anxiety’s captive nature. David, you are such a capable writer.
Now you’ve got me thinking about the 80’s song with the similar title and how many ‘cap’ words I can think of. 😆
Would you give me an ‘A’, Mrs. Lee? 😉
(that is an amazing song!)
That depends… are your oratory skills as captivating as that which you deliver with your uncapped pen?

Every now and then I fall apart
