Twitter verse (for World Poetry Day)

Today is World Poetry Day. It also happens to be the fifth anniversary of Twitter – or twttr, as co-founder Jack Dorsey called it in his very first status update.

To mark the occasion, The New York Times has appealed to the twitterverse to wax poetic on Twitter (no more than 140 characters).

I was happy to oblige.


How about you? Care to share some Twitter verse?

Fire up Twitter and tweet out a post a poem to commemorate this special day. Tag it with #poetweet so we’ll have a record. And if you feel like it, leave a comment here — in verse, prose, haiku or however your creative muse dictates.

And happy World Poetry Day to all.
