Poems should be concise:
quick, small, like mice.
Then one day you find
they’ve made a nest in your mind.
I seem to be writing shorter, more epigrammatic verse recently. Probably influenced by reading too much FitzGerald/Khayyam.
This little poem was published in the December 2020 issue of Snakeskin–which celebrates 25 years as a monthly online poetry magazine, presumably the oldest (or rather “the most venerable”) such magazine in the world. Congratulations to its creator and sustainer, George Simmers!

Poems I love are like birds
on which I fly through words,
and those I love the best
make in my mind a nest.
As there are millions of species on Earth, it would take a long time to write a version for each one! 🙂
