Yes, I am on Twitter. It’s easy, it’s fast…what the heck. I’ve even managed to accumulate a few “followers” (love that).
And I try to make it worth their while by occasionally posting some pithy quotes, words of wisdom or original doggerel.
It’s a challenge to fit that 140-character limit but it also helps focus the mind and creates a very worthwhile writing exercise. Here are a couple of my recent efforts:
Winter subsides, withdraws
receding and uncovering
a shivering bareness
raised gooseflesh, a slow blush
spreading to every horizon
That Noir Moment
does it matter how far you fall
once you’ve fallen?
one small step or giant leap
a precipice or merely a pause
this typical paucity
as I try to compel the right words
communicating abject faith
simultaneously making my case for clemency
