Twitter poetry 2021: Week 24

My blogger-poet-friend Ingrid inspired me to create a Twitter account and start writing #APoemADay, which I began on January 1, 2021. I had intended to pick one form of poetry and stick with it for this entire week, but things didn't turn out that way, largely because I ended up cross-posting poems to Twitter from the Skeptic's Kaddish. Perhaps… Continue reading Twitter poetry 2021: Week 24

Twitter poetry 2021: Week 23

My blogger-poet-friend Ingrid inspired me to create a Twitter account and start writing #APoemADay, which I began on January 1, 2021. Well, well, well... looks like I've officially made it halfway to my goal of Tweeting one poem a day for the entire year of 2021. Not bad, eh? I must confess that I'm a bit proud of myself… Continue reading Twitter poetry 2021: Week 23

Twitter poetry 2021: Week 22

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

Twitter poetry 2021: Week 20

My blogger-poet-friend Ingrid inspired me to create a Twitter account and start writing #APoemADay, which I began on January 1, 2021. Here in Israel, we are now at a ceasefire with Hamas in Gaza (as of last night)... and some of my poetry from this week and from last was naturally "inspired" (if war can inspire) by the horrible… Continue reading Twitter poetry 2021: Week 20

Twitter poetry 2021: Week 19

My blogger-poet-friend Ingrid inspired me to create a Twitter account and start writing #APoemADay, which I began on January 1, 2021. Due to the ongoing violence in Israel, I ended up posting eight Twitter poems this week, instead of the usual seven. If you'd like to read my [general] perspective on the current explosion of violence here in Israel,… Continue reading Twitter poetry 2021: Week 19

Twitter poetry 2021: Week 18

My blogger-poet-friend Ingrid inspired me to create a Twitter account and start writing #APoemADay, which I began on January 1, 2021. I've come to belated realize that my Twitter poetry goal inherently requires me to write more poetry than I would otherwise attempt to produce.
