Found Poetry Friday #12



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.’



Last week, Michelle LaPoint Rydell commented on the Found Poetry Post with these words: “So beautiful Marit! I am in awe of your found poetry. I would like to join in one of these weeks. It would be really neat to see a blogpost of how you go about coming up with your poems. Do you lay a whole bunch of phrases out and then pick from that or do you look for certain words or how does that work? So COOL!”

Well of course I am always happy to answer questions and meet requests from my blog readers, so I plan on writing such a blogpost/tutorial and I will post it soon Michelle.

For this week, I changed from ‘cut out texts’ to a bit more difficult technique to find a poem…
if you need a challenge, this is it!
(I don’t have to explain this ‘technique’ any further, the picture explains it just well!)



Did you find a poem last week? Then share it!
