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 American sentences to Twitter, which I wrote a while ago… Of all the forms of micropoetry that I explored over the course of ’21, the American sentence probably most influenced my writing… I can’t say why, exactly, but it has come to feel like a supremely natural way for me to share pithy thoughts and snapshots of life.
Also, 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. All I’ve been doing of late is posting these weekly compilations of micropoems on Fridays! Huzzah!
Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem,

Wonderful ones, David. Love how you combine the images and words. Allows the mind to interpret and digest diverse meanings. 🙂
😊 Terveen 😊 – I really appreciate that you noticed that.
You are an expert at the American sentence.

You need to stay on Twitter, friend!! Happiest of Holidays to you!!
I think I will, but not necessarily a poem a day.
Thanks, Tricia 💘
Delightful little bites of thought and feeling.
Shabbat Shalom, David.

Light and peace to you, David! Wow. Strip away all the context and we must take a good look at ourselves! And congratulations for your year of poetry!
Thanks, Cindy ❤
Shabbat of peace and blessing.
I don’t think there exists a single thing in this world, which can’t be syllabified into an American sentence. 🙂 Nicely penned!
