Here is another type of poetry I hadn’t heard of before until I began researching for this month’s theme. Found poetry is poetry pulled together from any source that contains words, like your kid’s hippo report or a cookbook. You simply take the words or phrases and assemble them into a poem. If you use a copyrighted work, be careful you don’t violate the copyright. For more information, read this post on Almost an Author.
I pulled this from my novel The Truth and Other Strangers:
Air still like
A stagnant pond but
Not as refreshing.
Only a few sad notes
From a mourning dove.
Funeral song for a funeral dawn.
Share if inspired!
I really like the style, I could just imagine you have to actively seek and think about the poem. Rather than letting it flow out of your mind. Thanks for sharing!
