    The WF Media Team

    Micropoetry is a genre of poetic verse which is characterized by its extreme brevity. In other words, a micropoem is a short poem.
    Micropoetry is a collective term for a variety of different forms of short poetry. As a poetic artform, it doesn’t really have any rules. Although it does consists of certain forms of short poetry with fixed rules such as haiku, tanka, senryu and gogyohka.
    There are also no real character length limitations either. The limits are set by the medium with which they are being shared, and also that invisible line where micropoetry becomes a regular length poem. This is why the majority of poems on this site are less than 260 characters, with a maximum of 160 characters (mobile phone limit).


    Put your best romantic foot forward and post your poems below.

    You penny dreadful thing,
    a five and dime dame.
    Whispering in my ear,
    you still love to wear my ring.

    Wise trollop queen,
    you still know how many licks
    to make your king's heart sing.

    Nature weeps, the devil sings
    at mans greed and pride
    and what it brings

    Just lots of useless
    little things

    His brown; hers blue
    They meet
    a merest hint of a smile
    Connected souls
    From across a busy room

    One I posted on the forum a couple of years back. I can't be bothered to look for it but it's short enough to remember:

    Cupid's arrows
    target hearts
    lovers quiver
