Two Tweet-Length Poems

I.

5th anniversary celebration,
old friends revisited feels
slightly melancholy, new
year ahead, clean slate
permits new inspiration,
growth and fun
 

II.

meeting a date,
conversation flow-
ing but feel no spark
then he turns the
convo to politics and
starts dissing Hillary
date quickly takes
a nose dive 

We visit with our former member, Samuel Peralta, at dVerse Poets Pub for our 5th Anniversary celebration and write a poem using 144 characters.

  1. I am enjoying our virtual reunion with old friends, smiles.

    I know about bringing politics to the conversation – it can ruin the peace. Sorry that the conversation took a nose dive though. I am glad I don’t meddle too much in the US politics.

  2. Me too, Grace!

    Yes, politics can ruin the peace and ever wanting to see that person again. No need to disturb your peace with our crazy politics…I try to avoid it myself!

  10. A date, how interesting. But politics quickly reveals sources of incompatibility. I especially liked your first poem, visits with old friends can bring melancholy.

    Tweet one is sweet. Tweet 2 is a great example of why we should not talk politics. Of course, any topic we don’t like could substitute Hillary. Well done.

    The moment politics is invoked it can go any direction. People often take strong views on politics from my experience!

  15. You’ve cleverly and very succinctly portrayed two important events in the word limit Gayle ~ a wonderful example of ‘less is more’! 🙂
