One to Six Line Micropoetry

Micropoetry | Haiku | Gogyohka | Tanka | Senryu | Twaiku | 1-6 lines | 3-10 words

On twitter, poets and creative writers use a limited amount of lines to express their ideas. These words can take the form of poem or prose. It also enables micropoets to write poetry similar to tanka, gogyohka and haiku without following any of the rules for each style.
