Exactly how I felt when I first had my daughter! Holding a tiny babe and watching her growing up is so incredibly humbling and yet produces a God-like feeling at the same time.
You did very well with your six words!

Minute! Of course! I must be tired. I have raised it to 5. Nice job making me look stupid. Or, was that me being stupid with so little prompting?

Well, I have to be honest; I don't think this is a minute poem in any direction it is studied. It doesn't have the sixty-syllables (only eleven). It doesn't take a minute to read it. I'd say five seconds. Now I may have spent more time figuring out how this would be a minute poem, but, I got nothin'.

    That's because it isn't a Minute Poem but rather a minute poem (as in a small poem). minute has more than one definition....

What can one say to this? Though one be tiny (even if only in their own mind) can he also not be mighty? I think so yes! As this Minute poem so well expresses. Loren

Yes, it was a good minute poem. Maybe a bit redundant, but it was certainly appropriate for the contest. I don't know that much about poetry, as you probably already know.

I thought this was a gem. nice use of the short lines to underscore the focus on the tiny individual, and the use of alliteration was top notch. "Teeny , tiny,/ me." you really cut the world down to size in this one, and leave us there standing on the street corner, with the world passing us by on its immense journeys. estory

Yes, language is wonderful. if you're talented you can do almost anything with it as you certainly are. I like your teeny, tiny itsy-bitsy poem. You did a great job. Shirley

Now how I'm going to use enough words to describe your great and very cute little minute poem, I just don't know...
But it IS cute, makes me smile. All the references to insignificance on a black screen is very effective!

This is very clever, G. I am reading this as not MinIT but Minoot. Pronunciation can be a tough thing. Yes, language is wonderful. And my review is much longer than your Minoot poem. Marilyn

    Yeah, a couple of folk didn't get the small thing and told me it was wrong. You never hear anything back from them when you point it out though....

reply by BeasPeas on 13-May-2019
    It is painful to have to point out our purpose, I think. What seems crystal clear to us as the writer is not always that way with those who read our work. Marilyn

Cheers, Mr. G;
> Are you talking about being stopped by a California Highway Patrol who just looks like somebody from Tennessee with the baggie flaps for thighs and boots to go up to his knees, particularly black and shiny And of course can't get the Ray-Ban sunglasses. But if it was in Tennessee be smoking a cigar, as he blows it in your face and says, "You know how fast you were going, Chucky?"
>, right to the point very definitive good job.

I enjoyed this immensely and thank you for sharing this little gem with us. I agree, language is wonderful. Time for a few dots to complete the 150 characters requirement for reviews That ............................................................................... That should do it, right?

    It is a crazy rule and I do wish Tom would listen when people complain about it.
