PoMoSco Day 15

15 Apr

Whoo. I am beginning to flag. How many days are left? Ack. Really? Today’s bit of fluff comes from these directions: Locate a community bulletin board — try places like a library, coffee shop or university campus. Create a poem using only words found on the posters and fliers. I used a Starbucks bulletin board: Bonus Star.

Other bulletin boards:

Kristina McDonald: Self Portrait in Seven Parts

Misky: Opportunities

Robbie Bolluyt: you’re a Darkroom

Richard Walker: exclamation point

James Benger: Crimson Maple Ridge (sometimes a double spacer gets by the brain — for me the spacing adds to the poem’s working)

Ingrid Jendrzejewsk: Ask in Entrance Hall

Barbara C: Give Us This Day

Debra Bennett: Dust Off Your Dancing Shoes

That’s plenty to be going on with. Enjoy. Tomorrow’s prompt is a wild and woolly one.

      I figure if ever we run dry, we just need to turn to the prompts that worked for us from these!

        YES! I absolutely love found poems, and moving into a poem through source text inspiration. Some of my favorite pieces have been wordles.😉
