The Ancient Eavesdropper Now Tweets?!

Twitter is for succinct poets only I guess,

cut unnecessary verbs and customize

the small talk to thumbs in a texting bliss.

Never thought I’d tweet, let’s leave it

for the birds bickering over breadcrumbs

out in the street, but what the heck,

humans are just grounded fowls run amok 

sharing secrets they just can’t keep.

You heard right, The Ancient Eavesdropper

dropped a pine cone bomb on Twitter, he’s 

signed an account for you to follow

if you so desire:

  1. I’ve been thinking of taking the twitter plunge too… and I’ll follow you if I do. (Just because it rhymes – doesn’t mean it’s a poem.) 🙂

    Blessings ~ Wendy

    • Haha! Thank you the follow on Twitter, Wendy! I’m still finding my way around the smaller nest and acquainting myself with abridged language. I still prefer WordPress over anything else out there. Keep up the wonderful work on your blog and on Twitter. Hope you have a safe and relaxing 4th of July 🙂

      • Tyler, I agree that WordPress is best. Happy July 4th to you & your wife! I really enjoy your poetry and pictures. Your enthusiasm and creativity is inspiring.

  2. I have to ask – is this cause I tweeted about your poem earlier today? 🙂 Think of it all as personal marketing.

    • It’s from seeing the hits I received from Freshly Pressed on Twitter. As you say, just another way to market your poetry, and it will help me be a more succinct poet! BTW, thank you so much for tweeting about my blog. While I write to release my soul, I wish to share myself with all the world, and you, my friend, have lifted me on your shoulders, so-to-speak 😉 Hope you have a wonderful Friday and weekend. Keep up the excellent work on WordPress and Twitter!
      Tyler 🙂

    welcome to twitter! Even I am relatively new here but I love it already!…Its fun, its easy and the word limit is d icing on d cake!! 🙂

    • Thank you, Apurva! It’s a different medium to channel our poetry, but I think it can only strengthen the succinctness of our words. These days, saying less is more, since everyone has such a short attention span. It’s a pleasure to follow you on WordPress and now Twitter and I look forward to reading more of your inspiring poems. Hope you have a relaxing weekend, my friend!
      Tyler 🙂
