Short Bursts


Couplet: motivation

Once you get in the swing
Try not to fall off the thing


Quatrain: time to mutilate

A short sudden burst
Extinguishes the flame
In order to deny a thirst
We alter a given name


Abbr(eviated) Haiku: abbr(eviation)

to save time
abbr(eviation)
is abbr


Lune: underdeveloped

single image shot
will belie
no depth beyond shape


Haiku: holiday pics

tacky summer gloss
snaps timeless filtered sunsets
sun ripened visions


Weekly Theme:
Micropoetry


In the coming weeks the twisting tail
will reduce postings to three days a week.
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
