Found Poetry Friday #13 (in honor of Joe “Spadoman” Spado)

found-poetry-badge

 

I love poetry.
I am especially fond of ‘found poetry’, and I mean found in all its forms… found in book titles, found in magazines, on book pages, cut out words and sentences – you name it. There is so much possible when it comes to ‘found poetry’… and this kind of poetry is also great to use on art journal pages also.

I therefore started FOUND POETRY FRIDAY – everyone is welcome to play along!

There is an “Inlinkz”-list at the end of this post. If you want to share your found poems, you are welcome to add your name to the list that will link us to your blogpost.

You can post your found poem on your own blog any time during the week, so you don’t have to make YOUR Fridays all about poetry – you just link us to the post that contains your poem. Please use the url that goes directly to you ‘found poetry post.’

More pictures, less words

 

Hello Friday, Hello Friends!

I have a sore and thick left hand (some inflammation maybe?) and typing is not good for it – but I do have a lot of art to show… so this post will contain more pictures and less words then.

Starting with… another Book title Haiku!

Conversations on the Road

 

Hello Friday, Hello Friends!

I managed to compose another book title haiku for you, but I am almost done with it as I used up most of the books in my bookcase that have the right syllables in the titles… I am at a point that I use titles that has been used in a book title haiku before – combining them differently to get another haiku – but the end is near… somewhere this Summer, these book title haiku’s will stop and I have to decide if I go back to writing haiku (submitting to Haiku my Heart) OR start a new series “Found Poetry Friday” (which will give me more freedom to ‘compose poems’ than haiku…)  What do you think?

Anyway – for now – here’s another Book title Haiku!

27-haikuboeken

..

De mystieke vrouw

Tussen iemand en niemand

Haar moeders dochter

The Feminine Mystique

Between Someone and No One

Her Mother’s Daughter

And of course I submit my haiku to Haiku my Heart Friday

TOOOOOOOT!!! – and a lot more ;)

 

OH MAN… the path to FEATURING issue #4 was not a smooth one!
We faced illness, technical and personal difficulties and set-backs –
but the team helped each other out and we have achieved to finish
the fourth issue with success. So now… drumroll please….

I am happy to announce that issue #4

of FEATURING is COMING SOON!

cover issue 4

And this issue is indeed as  inspirational, versatile and artsy as the former ones, if not more.

But hey, I am the editor-in-chief and the magazine is my baby so why should you believe me?
You better go and see for yourself.

Read the brief summary of the content

Flip through some of the pages in the preview

It will take a while for the actual paper magazine to get back from the printing office, but you may want to pre-order the magazine because when you do that, you have the chance to win a Mixed Media Paper Craft Kit from Gauche Alchemy!!

Yes, you heard it right: FEATURING cooperated with GAUCHE ALCHEMY for A GIVE AWAY.

Mixed Media Paper Craft Kit

We will give away 5 ACME Mixed Media Paper Craft kits to readers who pre-order issue #4 before June 23. The fourth issue of the magazine will be released soon after.

Now that is an extra reason to want to order the magazine, isn’t it? Why not go ahead then. PRE ORDER/BUY your copy now to have your name in the hat for our give away and to make sure the fourth issue of FEATURING will come your way as soon as it is released.
