Twitter poetry 2021: Week 29

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 naanis, which are only 4 lines and no more than 25 syllables long. For reasons I cannot identify, I was inspired to write this week's series about my six-year-old daughter... maybe… Continue reading Twitter poetry 2021: Week 29

Twitter poetry 2021: Week 28

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 brevettes, which are only 3 words long. Since they are so short, I decided not to publish them as individual posts here on WordPress - it felt too weird... so I… Continue reading Twitter poetry 2021: Week 28

Twitter poetry 2021: Week 27

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 recent series of 7 schuttelreims on Twitter for my daily poetry challenge. A schuttelreim is a two-line poem, which employs a spoonerism that makes sense. They are deceptively difficult... and they produce very… Continue reading Twitter poetry 2021: Week 27

Twitter poetry 2021: Week 26

My blogger-poet-friend Ingrid inspired me to create a Twitter account and start writing #APoemADay, which I began on January 1, 2021. Two notes: This week, I posted 7 gogyohkas on Twitter, as you'll see below. Next week, I'll have 7 in a different poetic form. I won't necessarily stick to one form per week, but for some reason, I… Continue reading Twitter poetry 2021: Week 26

Twitter poetry 2021: Week 25

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 went with several different poetic forms, but I think I'll make an attempt at posting seven gogyohkas on Twitter for next week... I've been growing fond of them for their flexibility. This week, I actually… Continue reading Twitter poetry 2021: Week 25

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
