Short poems can carry special moments with straight forward or a complicated set of words. Poets generally spend more time in gathering perfect word. It often comes with 6-8 words but eventually, there is no hard and fast rule for it.

Short poems are known by many names like a micro poem, micro poetry, monostich, verse, haiku and many more, as the list keeps ongoing.

Well, let’s talk about How to write a short poem?


Inspiration is the backbone of a poem. Inspiration is which gives birth to a poem that might come from hot coffee or can come from a crowded bus. If you are willing to write a short poem, then focus on the thought behind your topic.
