Micropoetry 1

As part of the Fifth Anniversary celebration at
dVerse,
we’re asked to write micropoems, very short works wrapped up in Twitter’s 140 character limit. Each of the poems below stands alone; they are not stanzas to be read as one poem. Only the first is new; I’ve tweeted the others before, but they are all original.

Old thoughts
In new packaging
The cycle of life unfurls!

But… I couldn’t just write one new tiny piece, so I got to wondering if a
Limerick
would fit within the character limit! The linked ones don’t (at least, I didn’t check them), but this one…

The Limerick is too long to fit,
But I got the guts and the grit.
O I’ll make it work
And my duty not sherk!
Defeat so complete? Not a bit!

(That’s 139 characters, count ’em!)

Now for those I wrote on Twitter itself, so I know they work:

4/29/16
God is great,
God is good,
Let us thank Himn as we should!

4/2/16
When I feel lost,
I find myself again
Where I have always been
Deep within.

5/1/15
Once unrestrained
Then I thought.
Now I think restrained about covers it.

5/3/15
Cunning gets
What it wants
Only through a narrow lens.

5/3/15
Worry grows.
Nothing goes.
Love knows.

5/14/15
It’s time to remember
The nature of my soul –
A throwback to who I really am.

5/15/15
Lipservice says
The best things in life are free.
Living shows
Avoidance in the worst way!

5/15/15
From lead to gold,
Ice to steam,
Fear to Love –
Alchemy!

5/16/15
Armed with sword and shield
I march into the battle
Still unprotected.

5/18/15
O to live
In the realization
Of the Beautiful Mind
Within me!

5/21/15
Surrender your life
Don’t waste your mind
Know your right that is Divine!

5/22/15:
God,
Universal
Intelligence,
Directs
Everything

5/25/15:
Blank pages appear
Because we don’t know
The whole story.
SO may we read on!

5/25/15
I remember:
We are One.
Do you?

5/26/15
The sun shines my heart
The moon lights my mind
And living waters quench my thirsty soul.

5/27/15
I sacrificed myself
On a pyre of memories.
The hero is my soul that wouldn’t die!

6/25/15
Too much of a good thing
Is nonetheless the same extreme
As too little of what we need.
So moderation is the key.

Qualifying haiku here.

I like these little gems and will write more–thus the 1 here. 🙂
