Micropoetry is a genre of poetic verse which is characterized by its extreme brevity. In other words, a micropoem is a short poem. Micropoetry is a collective term for a variety of different forms of short poetry. As a poetic artform, it doesn’t really have any rules. Although it does consists of certain forms of short poetry with fixed rules such as haiku, tanka, senryu and gogyohka.
There are also no real character length limitations either. The limits are set by the medium with which they are being shared, and also that invisible line where micropoetry becomes a regular length poem. This is why the majority of poems on this site are less than 260 characters, with a maximum of 160 characters (mobile phone limit).

Please don’t be shy – put your best romantic (or not) foot forward!


As a media team event, participation in this challenge gives WF permission to publish any of the poems as part of our Valentine’s Day promotion on social media, Flashes etc. Check out FB, Pinterest, and Twitter to see if your poem has been included.

Selected poems will also be put forward for possible inclusion on Flashes
