Found Poetry

Daily Prompt #4: Writing from a Word

FOUND.
Write for five minutes (no stopping) about whatever comes to mind after seeing this word.  Don’t over think.  Just write.

 

What is Found poetry?

Here are some samples:

Sample #1

Sample #2

Sample #3

Midnight Thoughts

From The Mysterious Affair at Styles, by Agatha Christie, pg. 240

As you can see, there are many ways to create Found poetry.


 

Now for the fun part.  I have a bunch of old magazines and books in the back of the classroom.

Go and make your own Found poetry on your notebook covers (or on the inside cover if you prefer)!

Consider taking a picture of your poetry.  You might want to post it on the blog you’ll be creating in the next couple of weeks!
