Tweet Poem

With the advent of the "smart" phone, idiot phones, and other electronic devices of abbreviated attention spans, I thought we would do the tweet poem. What is the tweet poem? I hear you ask? It is a poem of only 140 characters. Now this poem will include the space between letters as counting toward the 140 character count. The subject matter and theme is up to you. Good luck.

We'll also engage in our group poem therapy exercise.

See you then!

    I'm sorry but I won't be able to attend tomorrow. I have some family business I need to attend to tomorrow morning. Hope to write poetry again with you all later.

    A tip on writing tweet poems: use a text editor, like notepad (that uses mono-spaced fonts) and make a header that is 140 characters long. I used something like this: ("012345678901234567890123...", etc). Then on the lines below, compose your tweet poems. This makes it very easy to see how close your poem is to 140 characters. For fun, I am making each poem exactly 140 characters, no more, no less. Kind of as a CyberHaiku challenge. -Jim (AKA: blue)

      Tweeter leaders may be the greeters...

      A slip of the tweet could sink your sheet.

    To wish you all a Happy Poetry Month:

    The month is young,
    And like a new toy,
    May it cause you
    To dance with joy.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
