Twitter poetry 2021: Week 49

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 shadormas to Twitter, which I wrote a while ago… Actually, I’m thrilled to say that I’ve completed my full year’s worth of micropoems for 2021, meaning that I no longer have to compose poems for this particular project. From here on out, I’ll only be posting these weekly compilations of micropoems on Fridays! Huzzah!

Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem,

  1. “Have I inked the cleverest verses I’ll ever deliver?” These moments of doubt seem to come with the territory for writers. Of course, the answer is “NO!” You will continue to write better and better poems until one day you become senile and begin to just ramble on. ๐Ÿ™‚ Very well-captured moment.

    I also especially liked your poem about the pandemic. In the last few years, we have witnessed many events that we could never have imagined, including the pandemic. If someone had said there would be a run on toilet paper, you would have thought him a kook, right? If someone had told you all about a US president who would…You get my meaning. “Reality!”

    Take care, David! โค

  2. My favorite: crack words o-
    pen, peel off the syl-
    lables, flake
    by flake, like
    brilliant, beckoning, frac-
    tured, magical eggs
    Even your use of four distinct adjectives felt like a lexical expression of that flake by flake fracturing. Besides, I might have to use ” brilliant beckoning”–my kind of alliteration.
