Short Form Poetry

Writing short form poetry produces finished poems quickly while working on longer poems that take multiple edits. They are also good for therapy: when you are down-in-the-dumps, a quick impromptu haiku works wonders to remind of God’s beautiful nature, a healing force.

imprint under my nose.
Chain two four six eight and tie two
again.

Have a blessed weekend!
