Y'all know I love Tiny Poems. Here is something fun from Poets Cornered (who are on Facebook):
"Many of you will be unaware that Sunday the 8th May is International Write -A-Tiny-Poem Day.
This day was suggested in the footnote of one of Walt Whitman's many letters to Alfred Lord Tennyson - both considered the Perfect Tiny Poem the ultimate aim of English poetry; both of them succeeded in creating one Perfect Tiny Poem each*.
So - on the afternoon of the 8th May, why not breathe life into the form by writing one Tiny Poem. The only rule should be: keep it tiny-tiny-wee-and-small.
* Unfortunately for connoisseurs of the form they surrounded both sides of their Perfect Tiny Poems with c.150 lines of Less Than Tiny Poetry. The irony was lost on Whitman but encouraged by Tennyson. He managed to breed it into his later work."
