Perfectly Poetical: Found Poetry

From LSL Buttons

Welcome to May's edition of Perfectly Poetical Tuesday (PerPoTues)! The second Tuesday of each month I invite you to write a poem based on a certain style, because I believe that every life writes a poem.

This time our theme is Found Poetry.

How to join in today:

  1. Find an excerpt from an article, text on a street sign, a quote from someone famous or other printed matter that's not a poem – and make it into one! Post it on your blog and include a link back to this post.
  2. Stop back by, link up and leave a comment.
  3. Follow the other links and read some great poetry!

A few other notes:
  • My poem post is scheduled to show up after this one.
  • If you're spreading the word via Twitter, feel free to use hashtag #perpotues.
  • If you don't have a blog, you can post in the comments here and skip the linking part. :)
Next PerPoTues will be June 8. The style will be triolet. I learned about that on MediaDrome and will be explaining what it is next Tuesday (5/18). Be sure to stop back by!

In the meantime, enjoy some poetry!

UPDATE: I don't know what's up with Mr. Linky, but feel free to just post the link to your Found Poem in the comments. Thanks!


  1. Mr. Linky's looking wonky, so I'll post my link here:


  2. In case you didn't see it on your way to this post, my Found Poem is here: http://littlestuffoflife.blogspot.com/2010/05/life-in-poetry-or-is-it-poetry-in-life.html


What do you have to say about that?
