Twitter Tweet Verse (Limerick & Haiku Prompt)

I sure hope many of you use (or at least are familiar with) Twitter.  Because Twitter is today’s limerick and haiku topic.  First, my limerick:

Twitter Jitters
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I really don’t mean to sound bitter,
But it’s hard to fit humor on Twitter.
Posting  tweets so damn short
Is a challenging sport,
Cuz there’s no time for laughs — just a titter.

And now my Twitter haiku (senryu):

My tweets on Twitter:
Memories, links, mutterings.
Fragments of a life.

As you might have guessed, I use Twitter.  If you’d like to, you can follow my Twitter Tweets here.

But now, of course, it’s your turn. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to write some verse about Twitter. When you’ve posted your poem(s), please return here and add a direct link to your themed poetry, using Mr. Linky.

  1. love the Limerick, Mad!

  2. Brevity: wit’s soul
    But in these few characters
    No room for body.

  3. Tweets are speedy to read, but so short
    That our writing intentions they thwart.
    Thus we either use links
    To complete what we thinks
