Recently, I’ve gone from being a bit of a skeptic about Instagram poetry to absolutely loving it! As I’ve begun finding “my people” instead of just following the big InstaPoets, the community has really begun making more sense to me and I’m so glad I stopped being so snobby (I’ll admit it!) and dived into this world.
Part of this journey has been joining a couple of #InstaChallenges. I’m fond of @thedancingink’s prompts (and pretty much anyone from the @PoetixU universe) and I’ve been enjoying tackling these poems without the pressure to make something super perfect for publication. It’s a nice way to reset and put some playfulness back into poetry.
To read my thoughts on this particular haiku, hop over to my Instagram and check it out! And for my poetry loving friends- give @thedancingink a follow!
