PoMoSco Day 10

10 Apr

This was an interesting prep. Here are the instructions: Look in your local newspaper for open meetings, lectures or other talks happening in your town — the more specialized and unfamiliar to you, the better. Sit in the audience and scribble down words and phrases you hear. Turn your notes into a found poem. Cite your speaker(s)’ name(s), talk title [if applicable], location and date at the bottom of your poem.

My only problem is that I am very good at taking notes, so I had a big reservoir of words and phrases. I went in with a scythe, first, then a weed whacker, and finally a trimmer, one of the ones used to trim bonsai. The result is To Want Something More.

Others — many names will be becoming familiar to you:

Vinita Agrawal: Build Me Bridges

Richard Walker: This Trajectory

Marilyn/Misky Braendeholm: Those Lost Kites

Sara Adams impermanence is the only thing that works in Fahrenheit around here

A side note: I received an email earlier this week from Pat Lichen whose web site I featured regularly in Friday’s roundup of prompts, until she took a hiatus. I’m sending you to her old web site for her entry and because many of you will recognise it. Her post has further links should you wish to investigate.

Tomorrow we have a new toy! Enjoy.
