jot a caught thought
whittle a tittle of phrase
-ble tears, and days.

    You know I love the tiny poem. It’s all my favorite, but especially the L1 and L3.

    So true- tears and days make some fine poetry. I liked this tiny poem!

  3. I LOVE “whittle a tittle!!!” This is the epitome of an inked bit of poetic tiny-ness!! My sister used to say “just a tit,” of this or that when she meant, “just a tidge!”” This made me laugh!! 🙂
