Crying – Micro Poetry


She wept
and the sky cried with her

National Poetry Writing Month
Day 30 - NaPoWriMo

And last but not least, now for our final prompt for this year!
I’d like you to try your hand at a minimalist poem. What’s that?
Well, a poem that is quite short, and that doesn’t really try to
tell a story, but to quickly and simply capture an image or
emotion. Haiku are probably the most familiar and traditional
form of minimalist poetry, but there are plenty of very short
poems out there that do not use the haiku form. There’s even
an extreme style of minimalism in the form of one-word and
other “highly compressed” poems. You don’t have to go that far.
