Found Poetry

What to do when there is nothing else to do. Well, I often resort to Found Poetry. It's an idle way of taking a preset arrangement of words and either re-arranging them or keeping them in the same order but putting in the "significant pauses" that make the words "poetry" or thoughtful comments on life.

A Restaurant Study

I usually use something that is close at hand and re-arrange the words to create something interesting.

Author of All Time

English and...
A hundred foreign languages,
A billion copies.
Outsold only by
The Bible,

She died in 1976....Agatha Christie

From the back cover of an Agatha Christie mystery that I am about to start.

The picture - A restaurant in Italy. The last two books that I have read by Agatha Christie had detailed descriptions of people in dining rooms.

Have a wonderful day!!

  1. What a lovely idea. I'm guessing you don't have to use all the words but you can only use words from a single source?
