GloPoWriMo2017: Day II: Brevity

In honour of Kay Ryan and the latest NaPoWriMo prompt – here it is, Day II – a brief attempt at a short poem

Brevity is
The source
Of wit
Say less
Mean more

Those who
Speak endlessly
Carry within
An abyss

Those who
Say Nothing
May mean
The most

Life measured
In moments
Not years
Is full

Joy felt
In plans
Laid long
Fleeting

Live like
The Mayfly
Fast
Then die

Brevity is
Hard, but
Saying little
Speaks volumes

  1. Beautifully written. And so was your Haibun yesterday. I could picture you in your room, your imagery was very evocative!
