Micropoetry-4

Micropoetry on Twitter offers an exciting challenge, a totally different style of articulation – more intensity and immediacy, a heightened flavour brought on by the constraints of the platform.
Gathered some of my recent tweets (my twitter ID is @tp_poetry), some were in response to prompts by @SoulSoulwords and @fieryverse.

*
his tankas were like
old fashioned dolls
that blinked their eyes
when you rocked them to sleep

*
tonight’s muse
snores in his sleep
the insomniac daisy
rolls over and blinks the moonlight from her eyes

*
sleeping rainbow
wishes for rain
in its summer dreams

*
monsoon clouds
gather in the map room
plotting deluges

*
filtered darkness
weaves magic spells on the forest floor
but the wily canopy
keeps the stars for itself

*
in the shadow of the peepal tree
yesterday’s moonlight
gathering dust

*
sitting on a zafu island
the mind remembers
the healing ripples
of the tatami sea

*
stretch the moon
till it is a silver line
separating your night
from mine

*
touching the rim of the evening sky
fingertips of my dreams
stained orange

*
drifting memories
pause suddenly
something seems familiar
