I’ve started a group entitled https://www.facebook.com/groups/YozenPoetry/ that I would like to invite people to join. It is yoga and zen inspired poetry continuing on in the manner of Rumi who used poetry as a vehicle for enlightenment and wisdom.
Call for Submissions (http://microthoughtprocessedpoetryandartjournal.wordpress.com/):
Poetry has been around for millennium, but micro poetry is a format and style that has surged with the computer age and Internet. With platforms such as Twitter, Tumblr, and more, micro blogging has lead creative efforts in seeing how few words are required to express an idea, mood, story, or image. As poetry is visual music, art is music sculpted. Poetry and art together create a mental symphony that can take us anywhere we allow ourselves to go.
Micro Thought Processed Poetry and Art Journal is a quarterly online journal celebrating the joined arts of human inspiration. Submission of art and micro verse can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org All attempts will be made to respond quickly.

Until we meet again,
Her balloon went flying in the air
and the young adorable little girl
went running after it.
She stopped in her tracks
and another little girl handed her the balloon
it was like looking in a mirror
In that split second
her hand was grabbed and she was whisked away to the car
without ever seeing the girl again.
OKAY HERE IT GOES. TAKE IT HOW YOU WANT IT. BLACK PEOPLE ARE MAKING A BIG DEAL ABOUT JULIANNE HOUGH’S BLACKFACE. WHITE PEOPLE ARE MAD BECAUSE DIDDY POSTED A PICTURE OF WHITE FEMALES BOWING DOWN TO A BLACK FEMALE. BLACK PEOPLE ARE PISSED OFF ABOUT THE JAY-Z AND BARNEY’S DEAL. THEN WE HAVE CHRIS BROWN AND THAT’S A WHOLE DIFFERENT STORY. FACT: YOU CAN’T PLEASE EVERYBODY. FACT YOUR LIFE ISN’T ON A GIANT SCREEN FOR THE WORLD TO SEE. FACT PEOPLE MAKE MISTAKES. ALL THIS IN WHAT SEEMS LIKE ONE WEEK GO GET WHITE GIRL WASTED NOW AM I BEING RACIST BECAUSE I SAID WHITE GIRL OR BECAUSE I DECIDED TO DRINK CONJURE AND IT’S REPRESENTED BY A BLACK MALE.
