Twitter Poetry Week 14

Here’s this week’s roundup of micro-poetry for Twitter. There is no poem for Day 94: this was Sonnet Sunday and I was just too busy with sonnets to post a micropoem, but I did post two on Day 93. You may notice that my poems don’t get a lot of love on Twitter. This is… Continue Reading →

Twitter Poetry Week 13

A whole quarter year has passed in this Twitter Poetry Challenge. So I guess I’m not feeling as excited about #NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) as everyone else is. But I did add it to the tags of my Twitter poems for good measure. I also gave myself a break on Wednesday (day 90) because… Continue Reading →

Twitter Poetry Week 11

Looking back, it seems that this week’s micropoems have been concerned with water, earth, air and fire. I have also been enjoying reading the poetry of others on Twitter: remember you can join in any time. Just write a poem in a single tweet, tag me @Experimentsinfc and use the hashtags #APoemADay and #poetryparty. As… Continue Reading →

Twitter Poetry Week 10

I have noticed after doing this for 10 weeks that the poems seem to fall into different patterns, or ‘themes,’ every week. This has not been deliberate on my part, but it is interesting to note. Looking back, it appears that this week’s theme was self-analysis, appropriately enough: As ever, I welcome your feedback. Feel… Continue Reading →

Twitter Poetry Week 9

9 weeks in and finally I forgot to post a poem! This is why there is no day 57. I think my mind just needed a break. Luckily, I am accompanied by many talented poets, and I am gathering together a collection of poems which will make a fine anthology by the end of the… Continue Reading →

Twitter Poetry Week 8

Another week, another seven micro-poems for Twitter! Unfortunately, PMDD hit me really hard this month, and sapped me of much of my poetic inspiration. You will notice a few poems about PMDD here. In including them, I hope to be able to reach other sufferers and raise awareness and understanding of the condition. I ended… Continue Reading →

Twitter Poetry Week 7

This week I would like to give a special shout out to my blogging friend and fellow poet David Ben Alexander. He deserves a special mention because, like me, he has posted a poem every day for the past 7 weeks! We are the marathon runners of this challenge and if it’s not always fun,… Continue Reading →

Twitter Poetry Week 6

Regular readers may notice that a lot of these poems have already appeared in one form or another on this blog. Apologies for the repetition: some of the poems I have written this week fit nicely into a tweet so I decided to recycle. Do let me know your likes and dislikes: be honest, I… Continue Reading →

Twitter Poetry Week 5

This week, I have freed myself from the restraints of the tanka format and tried to follow where inspiration took me. Inspiration being something that comes and goes, perhaps some of these short poems are more inspired than others. I offer them up for your consideration, do let me know if you have a particular… Continue Reading →

Twitter Poetry Week 4

A whole four weeks of micro-poetry have flown by here at EIF! Once again, I have stuck mainly to the Tanka format for this week’s Tweets. I may try some other forms or free verse next week. I am really enjoying the stunning contributions from other Twitter poets, and two who definitely deserve a mention… Continue Reading →
