The Challenge of Twitter Poetry

How do you write a poem in 140 characters or less? Less than 140 characters because I usually tie the poem to one of my images: that cuts the space down to 117. Even with a link shorterner, like ow.ly, that still leaves me with only a skimpy offering of 95 characters to wax poetic. I can forget hashtags like #poetweet and #twaiku. Maybe not. I’ll give it my best go. I’ve already tried a few. Here’s one of my recent Twitter expressions. Never mind the title. Not enough characters for one.

I have a family. I work with families. That's why I write about family. I'm a kidmin pastor by day, writer by night, delivery man for my wife's floral design business, and a picture-taker dude 24/7.
