“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 140 characters (twitter limit), with a maximum of 160 characters (mobile phone limit).”

The Line 1/10/15
The Line lies scribbled in the sand.
I crossed it long ago.
I’ll never be the same man,
but there’s hope if I let IT go.
Submerged in water.
Stripped of my sins.
Sacrificed and sanctified.
Shackles are off.
Sentence is served.
