Issue Six: Blue

With Issue Six, tiny wren enters its blue period. Give us your blue-inspired micro-poems, your little Picassos, indigo buntings, cyanopsia, psychological, spiritual, symbolic associations. Be creative in how you interpret the theme. Surprise and delight.

Submit up to six (6) tiny poems in a single Word document (.doc or .docx or .pdf). Each poem should be on its own separate page, single-spaced, + in 12-point font, nothing fancy. Work should be your own + unpublished. Before you submit, please read our FAQ page.
