During the hubbub of the holidays Maureen Devlin (@lookforsun) began tweeting about #micropoetry. It was busy at the time and "micro" sounded like exactly what I needed. I clicked the link and sat for some time reading these tiny poems written on Twitter in l40 characters or less. Of course, I had to try a few. Here are my first #micropoems written at that time:
Of course weeks passed, but I continued to stalk the #micropoetry hashtag. If you haven't stopped by, you might want to check it out. Today I decided to try a few #micropoems for Poetry Friday.
White blankets the earth
I try to envision
The green grass
The flowers soon to fill the yard
The birds fluttering again
The dark keys
stare at me
as if I should have something to say.
I stare back
as if they should help.
There is a silence
Micropoetry is a little addictive. I haven't had this much fun playing with words and lines since #6wordstories. I'd love for you to give #micropoetry a try in the comments below.
