Overview

Tears is a collection of fourteen micropoems that have been paired with images taken from the Internet.
The more recent popularity of “micropoetry” to describe poems of 140 characters in length or shorter appears to stem from a separate coinage, as a portmanteau of “microblogging” and “poetry” in a notice on Identica on January 23, 2009, announcing the formation of a group for fans of poetry on that microblogging service.

Author - Poet - Versifier
Born in Harlsden on the outskirts of London in 1943, Peter Barns spent his formative years living beside Regent's Park.
Educated at a Secondary Modern school, he left with just one qualification in 'O' Level Art.
Passing through a variety of occupations after leaving school, he finally ended up working in the construction industry as an electrician. After taking his City & Guilds, he became an electrical engineer and spent the next twenty years working on building sites. Somewhere in there he got married and divorced - a couple of times - and had two children.
He moved to the Highlands of Scotland in the late 1980's along with his partner. With the move came a new occupation - counselling people with alcohol and drug problems - which he did for six years before managing a charitable company recycling redundant computers back into the community.
Now retired he spends his time writing, and refurbishing houses.

A couple of fair poems in the bunch. To the author: show, don't tell and avoid rhyming for the sake of rhyming.
