The focus in short forms is on the brevity and economy of words. It’s the art of saying all that we want to while saying too little or not saying anything at all.

when a raindrop says it all

why talk an ocean!

there’s always a grain to find
there’s always a grain to feed
and a dishevelled straw
to put back in place.
aren’t nests like that –
restless!
