Writing 201: Poetry
Assignment — Day 9:

Prompt: Landscape
Form: Found Poetry
Device: Enumeratio

🙂  I concentrated so much on the landscape and the “found poetry” parts that I lost my list.  (Originally it was the list of verbs — move, surprise, value, celebrate . . . and there were more, but it was going on so long that I cut them short, and then ended up adding entire phrases.)

While this looks incredibly easy, this poem took me longer than any others.  It wasn’t just the physical cutting and pasting, it was the placing of the words.  I want to do another.  I have an idea, but I think it will take several days to construct.  Watch this space.  🙂

P.S.  I just manipulated this photo, bringing out rainbow colours and shadows.  I think it is clearer to read and prettier with the colours.  🙂
