Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.


Twi-Haiku, known as Twitter poetry,
is micro-poetry or short poems.
Twi-Haiku is described by how brief,
short, it is. Brief, not long ago,
usually referenced Haiku.

Micro-blogging changed that. Micro-
blogging created a new place for
Twi-Haiku, and an option for today's

Our society, for the most part, is
fast-paced. Micro-poetry fits a need.
People live life multi-tasking, but
enjoy expressing themselves poetically.
Longer poetic forms don't appeal for
any number of reasons.

It takes time to get comfortable with
a longer poetic form. People are short
on time, and there's not enough hours
in a day to learn the various poetry
forms. Some people want to do more
relaxing than learning in their free

People are looking to stress down in
the small amount of free time
available to them.

The idea of writing micro-poetry is
fun, and it allows to the point
thoughts without spending tons of time.
Editing, if necessary, is brief too.

Twi-Haiku publishes poetry to a large
number of people. It provides an
audience, and a different audience
for poetry.

Twi-Haiku promotes micro-poetry, gives
an opportunity to hone the craft and
reach-out to other poets, people.

A Twi-Haiku must be written in 140
characters or less. Twi-Haiku is a
Twitter organization.

Twi-Haiku is a place where Twitter
and poetry come-out to play, be seen.

It's an online application, and the
process to get an account is simple.
Type-in a user name, pick a password
and answer the security question.

Twi-Haiku is for poets to discuss,
read, contribute, rate and follow.
Users can vote and search for poems
that grab their attention, like other
social networking web sites. Twi-Haiku,
in this way, users influence content/

Twi-Haiku's mission statement "is to offer
free, alternative and authoritative
literature resource and one stop environment
for everyone looking not only for new
reading experience, but also for opportunity
to shape that experience by taking active
role in its creation."

Beautiful colors,

wings flutter in air or land,

on you brings fortune.

About Me

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
