About This Book:

The 30 tiny little poems collected in this book were written in April 2015, for the National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) challenge. Poetry is not a genre this author truly understands. However, thanks to the kind support from a wide range of friends online, I dared to give it a go. Your comments on how these poems may be improved will be gratefully appreciated.

These poems were first published on Twitter, which requires each Tweet to be 140 characters or less. The available space is in fact even less, due to the need to use the hashtags #NaPoWriMo and #tinylittlepoem. Interestingly, I have found such limitation helps tremendously to inspire me and fine-tune my use of words, which is extremely rewarding. One more note: The Chinese translation was done long after the English poems were written, when the decision to gather them as a book was made. As a result, it is more like re-writing in a different language, instead of a word-by-word conversion from one to the other.
