It’s not much, is it—

140 characters?

But with it,
One can capture
A fleeting moment

Of life.


The author's comments:
I don't tweet or facebook. But I do see that with a few words one uses one can capture a memory of life. This poem is experimental and in the form of a tweet—140 characters or less. You count them to make sure. And for those who tweet, use the title as a hashtag when you tweet today— #Life in 140 Characters or Less

First and foremost, I'd like to thank you for reading this and commenting on it. I'm sorry if the poem if rather vague; it was one of those spur of the moment poem that came out of nowhere. What I wanted to portray was how you don't need a lot of words to capture a memory, a precious moment in life. I think that's what many of these social networks do for many people. Does that explanation help? If it doesn't tell me. Thank you, anyway.

I don't really understand what's going on here. I liked the last sentence, though.
