… some of the best micropoetry from Twitter, kept alive in jars…

setting sun
how easy it is for you
one legged gull

@nightslostsoul

*

ignoring
the ringing of the phone
in my pocket
I walk along the river
to hear the warbler sing

@AsSlimAsImBeing

*

I hold my breath
as the butterfly passes
over the fence
between two spiderwebs
to reach the jasmine

@KrisLindbeck

*

Under the canopy
of an oak tree
the path
a river of shadows
turning to light

@MarkScabash6

*

rain falling
on silent trees
mountain snow

@moonflowernco

*

redwood sky
an ant almost reaches
my fingertip

@Stevenc58

*

tapestry of clouds—
the river snags
on a willow branch

@sagestone_

*

tiendas and the train
the deepest smells of dirt
how I loved
until I had to go
and find the sun

@SummerTense

*

see her as she flies
golden balloon moon rising
beyond a poem

@tweetheart4711

*

silently
she’s joined me
to look
at the moon
white cat

@moonflowernco

*

how can all my siblings
be growing old
summer sunsets

@moonflowernco

*

star watching
i find a swing
that still fits

@bigmax722

*

the neighbour’s
unkempt lawn…
all these butterflies

@cirrusdream

*

no word from you—
moonflowers pinched
closed

@SondraJByrnes

*

two pine cones
the life I gave
the life I took

@RekaJellema

*

his castle gone
a young boy brings
the ocean home

@NJBarico

*

in a quiet room
she is low tonight
her pale face of light
laid down on my thoughts
restless
her height has shrunk
moon
I wait for her rise

@beezknez

*

police engine sets
off car alarm in passing,
accelerating

@_Veee_

*

freight train
heading to Melbourne
with country stars
for city cranes
to hang up in the sky

@robbiepoet

*

black lab
in the park
owner bound

@redravine

*

light rain—
i cannot hear what
you mean

@SondraJByrnes

*

the shrinks put
roadway construction cones
around me
and start digging
for the ruptured main

@poemblaze

*

high clouds
one horse leans its head
against another

@TomTpc2

*

we peeled the duds
lit the unspent powder —
ghosts of the Fourth

@mariab3bx

*

night he
was born–
the beautiful rain

@robbiepoet

*

open the gate
enter the cottage
if I hear you
I might swift vanish
follow the crow’s call

@morganabag

*

boring day
the clouds refuse to be
anything but clouds

@poemblaze

*

always that moment–
breathless anticipation
when we reach the top
of the sandy tracks–
and then the sea

@robbiepoet

*

unable to
settle on just one
game
my boy’s king’s rook
sinks my battleship

@AsSlimAsImBeing

*

on the road
the wounded deer’s
panting

@stellapierides

*

Notes of a song
played across the surface
of my skin
in whispers

@Heidi_Ayala

*

stay with me
says the hummingbird
to the crimson hibiscus
hearing this
she slips unseen into the sea

@tantamount2

*

Shadows walking on
tree tops without any
ropes, ladders or scaffolding

@sfourstarz

*

releasing a sparrow—
its heartbeat lingers
in my palm
