Recently, I connected with a couple of growing poetry groups on Twitter: Realistic Poetry and Samantha's Daily Wisdom Words. Both are awesome communities for casual and professional poets alike, and both frequently feature writing prompts.
Personally, I have not written any poetry in quite some time, but the prompts in my Twitter feed got me not only curious, but engaged as well. Of course, Twitter has its limitations when it comes to length, but like flash fiction, it challenges me to cut out words that are not needed.
Over the past few weeks, I have made it a point to participate in both groups, and here are some of the resulting poems, all written on the spot without any editing.
