Happy Spring Dear Ones!
At least it is newly Spring here in Canada – especially here on the southern tip of our beautiful Vancouver Island.
May I suggest that you read my post from Monday: Marcia’s Meanderings – Thank you, Twitter! It’s brief and gives you a bit of an introduction to this post today.
Micropoetry is a new term for me, even as versed (pun intended!) in poetic styles as I am. Being relatively new to Twitter, I recognized the standard hashtag (#) defined in Wikipedia as: “Short messages on services such as Twitter or identi.ca (that) may be tagged by including one or more hashtags: words or phrases prefixed with a hash symbol (
#).” The use of this hashtag is to connect with people of like minds. If you want to share micropoetry with others you add the phrase #micropoetry into your tweet (your Twitter message) and others can see your poem. Similarly for #haiku or other short poetry styles. This works also for finding people interested in non-poetry subjects such as #hugs or #spring or #photography.
The following are some of the haiku and micropoems I have written recently:
The body slumbers ~ in moonlight spirit dances ~ sips on tears of joy. #haiku
Tulips bloom/ Two lips arch/ Smiles blossom. (in honour of Spring) #micropoetry
Welcoming smiles/ crack the landscape/ of a happy face. #micropoetry
Powdered sugar snow/Dusts the lawn/Sweetening the day. #micropoetry
On the bus a child/Knows her A B Cs song/ Sings to me sweetly. #haiku Continue Reading →
