Twitter poetry 2021: Week 34

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 musettes. For some reason, I was in a storytelling mood when I wrote this series, and the musettes turned into short fiction pieces… even though they certainly don’t have to be.

I’ve been really cranking out micropoems of various forms recently, trying to complete my full year of poems… and I’ve finally made it into December! So, that means that I’m almost done with my goal… I’m not really sure what I’ll do after that – but I think I’ll probably continue exploring some shorter forms of poetry (among other forms)… I never expected to enjoy or appreciate micropoems so much!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy these musettes!

Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem,

  1. Your Twitter poetry is really good David and I admire your sticking with it too. I need to learn to say more with less. Hugs ๐Ÿค— Joni

    1. honestly, if it hadn’t been for Ingrid, I would never have gotten a Twitter account and I would never have started writing short poems like this… it’s all her! It’s been such an interesting adventure… trying to say more with less, as you put it!


      1. I think that there are some very nice folks in the community that encourage people that have talented. Also the more you write the better everyone gets at their craft. That was nice of Ingrid to encourage you and people are enjoying your work, I know I am. Gabriela (Button) encouraged me and BulBul and I will never forget those kindnesses. Hope you and your family are well. Sending love. โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿฅฐ

      Actually… I'm into December now… so technically I have less than a month of poems left to write… but it'll take until Dec. 31 for all of them to get posted to Twitter ๐Ÿ˜€

      Much love,

  3. How is it that I missed all the posts with these musettes?!?! They are all so well done. The poems on the subject of loss in all its forms are quite impressive!!

  4. David, I like the rhythm of musettes. It reminds me of how I talk when happy and excited or have had entirely too much caffeine.

    The thing I like most about this week’s Twitter poems (and I like them all) is that they are unique, dark, and a little quirky! The poem about the husband who kills his cheating wife, especially paired with the photo of copulating frogs, is delightfully low! ๐Ÿ™‚ Reminds me of the song, “Frankie and Johnnie” โค

    1. ๐Ÿ’ž thank you, Cheryl. ๐Ÿ’ž

      it really makes me happy to know that you enjoyed this series, and your comment about too much caffeine made me chuckle because I can relate – and also – I thought to myself (as a joke) – “is that an oxymoron?”

    1. yep – I’m somewhat astonished with myself, TBH… but I think I’ll be done with the year in the next week (or two at most).

      Shabbat shalom,

          1. PMDD. Iโ€™ve an article coming out about it on the IAPMD website soon, so Iโ€™ll link this up to my blog in case anyone wants to know more!
