Micropoetry
« on: September 15, 2011, 01:38 PM »
What is Micropoetry? Micropoetry not really Haiku or Tanka, nor does it fit the structure of minimal poetry. Its becoming very popular in our micro world we live. Its a lot of fun and and a great creative stimuli

Its usually done in about 140 characters or less, or about 20 words. Well we currently dont count characters in a post ..so if you go over a few no problem but do your best to keep it close to the 140, after all thats its purpose and as its name implies - Micropoetry

Also this is a reply only foum. Please do not start a new topic, just click "Reply" and write your micropoem, then post. Title is always Micropoetry.

Happy MicroFun

     :poet

Here's an attempt at an example

cleansing rain
     dancing rain
naked rain
rain rain rain on me

Another example

love can not be petitioned
love can not be found
love finds you

dancing
on the tip of my tongue
your favorite song
Be careful of your thoughts; they may become words at any moment.  ~  Ira Gassen

This is Not a Title (after Magritte)

The breeze,
a bite of strawberry,
your face
a new sun.

and the rhythm of your heart

I cried
I played
I walked the line, as I aged
I learned
Time plays its famous game
Last pages quickly filled
I wake, I play
I reflect
I wait

this is cool RG there is a place in word under
view - then tool bars - click on word count -
it also gives you the option to count with/or without spaces
so if you ever need just a word count you can do that also
have fun
