I came upon this great site to help stimulate my muse. I will share the poems I come up with. This is fun to do and gets my creative juices flowing. Happy hunting, poetry really IS everywhere, you just have to pay attention 🙂
Cut the bindings off books found at a used book store. Find poems in the pages by the process of obliteration. Put pages in the mail and send them all around the world. Lather, rinse, repeat.
The merry group gathered
Talking with the fishermen
At the edge of the ice
To show me the fish swimming in the water
And I plunged feet first
Through the opening into the water below
I resurfaced in the same spot
Shocked but intact and howling
The doctor was summoned
And he pronounced me well.
