Monday Poetry Prompt: Tiny


This week let’s write a tiny poem. Is there a minimum number of words needed for a poem? I think so but what do I know? I think it’ll be more interesting to write a regular-sized poem about something tiny. Post your baby in the comments below.

  1. A Tiny Poem

    is full stop an ending
    ending in a dot
    a dot of minuscule
    minuscule holds the power of an ending
    an ending of a life
    a life springs from the ending

  2. I hope that’s not a true story. Ouch! One more reason not to go outside! 🙂

  3. labyrinth walking
    meditating peacefully
    tiny black bugs attached to my skin
    naturally my left breast
    painful as they were for me
    I had to think they had thoughts
    perhaps I was wrong
    to be walking in their space
    after all, it’s true
    bugs have the right to remain
    silent until deadly
    I’m still breathing
    gonna tell you this
    they are not
