This is my atempt at a foundword poem. Edith and I made a pact to have one done by today, but I missed the deadline. We are going to share them tomorrow. It as a fun exercise. It helped me to think outside the box and to not edit my thoughts before they come out.

Aren't they fun?

Annie Dillard has a book of Found Poems -- I think it's called On Mornings Like This -- she gathered them all from her morning newspaper.

Becky- I'm going to look for that book now. The other book I wanted, Poemcrazy, is out of print so I have to order it online. I hate waiting for things!

Thanks Kristen. :)

Aola, a foundword poem, at least in this version, is where you cut out words and phrases from magazines and then pick some to put together as a poem. They are fun to make. :)
